Yesterday, while working from home, I heard a tap-tap-tap at the door. Imagine how excited I was when I opened the door and found a long triangular box leaning against the door frame. I brought it in and slide a knife along the tape. I opened the box and inside were our tiny little scrappy trees! They are around 3-4 ft. tall...no leaves (arbor day ships the dormant). Since we don't have our land yet, these little bad boys will be potted along with the rest and await their new home (just like we are doing!).
Kiefer Pear, 2-Methley Plum, 2-Apricot and since we ordered all those, they gave us a Red Maple and 2-Forsythias for FREE! Today is a tree seedling give away at the Second Street Market ~ Part of our Five Rivers MetroPark system. I think I'll take my lunch hour to head down to see what they have to offer. For now we are fairly set with our trees...perhaps a fig or a couple cherry trees are in our future... Once we get the land and know exactly how much we are dealing with, we can focus on black and red raspberry bushes, blueberry bushes and grape vines. We also need to bulk up our strawberry production!!!
