I was at Lowe’s yesterday picking up some “fixing stuff” and went through the plant section to see what goodies they had on sale. And lo & behold, their trees were at least 50% off! So I wheel my buggy over to the picked-over tree section & find several plum and nectarine trees.
So I got two nectarine trees for under $20! Not bad, hugh?
I would have bought more, but we don’t have any holes dug yet other than the empty spaces left by the dead trees. And around here unless there is a place ready to go for a plant, they end up sitting in their pots forever. So unless I get really ambitions, or unless Paul puts the backhoe attachment on the tractor, two nectarines are all that are going in the ground this Fall. The cheapskate urge in me may be too strong though – come on, fruit trees (with a guarantee!) for under $10 a piece! How can I NOT go back and get more?
