Look left for pictures of my discount booty (hmm... maybe I shouldn't phrase it quite that way..."discount booty" suggests a different kind of sale--one likely to result in a trip to the local health department for an antibiotic). Anyway, here's what I scored for half price at OSH today:
- A Snow Queen nectarine
- A Goldmine nectarine
- A Red Baron peach
- A Twentieth Century (Nijisseiki) Asian pear
I think I officially have an orchard now, as the new trees will join 3 large orange trees, a large lemon tree, a peach tree (I forgot the variety), an ultra-dwarf nectarine, an Indio mandarinquat, 2 kumquats, a blood orange, a tangerine, a Meyer lemon, a Mexican lime, a Hachiya persimmon, an aprium, 2 apricots, a pluot, 4 apples, and an All-in-One almond. I need a twelve-step program for tree addicts:
"Hi, I'm Janet, and I'm addicted to fruit trees."
"Today I binge-planted 4 trees in a row. I can't pass a tree display in a store without stopping, and sometimes I just stand there, looking at the display with glazed eyes, drooling. And last week, I went tree-shopping before lunch. I staggered home to my family late in the afternoon, with a truckload of trees and an empty bank account."
"Here's your membership card."
Now, does anyone know where I can get an Asian pear, cheap? My new one needs a pollinator.
