Fed the tree just fine! Course, it took until mid January til we got it outside, and then until March before the thing started to brown...Just last weekend we finally chopped it up. It had a good life :-)

We used this for our tree this past Christmas and it worked great! Our tree stayed nice and green and lasted longer than normal. I will definitely be using this from now on. Thanks for a great recipe, Di!
