We braved the craziness of our local Master Gardener tree sale this weekend. We were not prepared last year…the advertisements said come early to get the best selection. So we showed up at 8:45 (doors open at 9am) and o.m.g. The line was wrapped around into the parking lot! It was like a black Friday sale! In preparation, we arrived at 8:15am and we were not the first in line. (This is looking to the back of the line about 10 minutes before it opened up.)
Once we got in, it was a mad dash to make sure we got a Meyer Lemon tree this year! Our county has citrus restrictions due to a disease that is running rampant, so we cannot transport any out of the county. The master gardener sale has great quality trees!
We picked up another of each (that we bought last year)- lime, lemon, fig, pear, peach, and some more blackberries.
While we were at the tree sale, Wade had some friends over and they cut up firewood. (Yes…wonderful friends to come over and do manual labor for some beer!)
And then we burned wood scraps (not freshly cut wood…it needs to cure about a year before it is good for burning).
