If you can stand another plant post...

Ah, I'm so excited. I have long wondered why people with homes don't plant more trees, especially the fruit bearing kind. And while I still don't have the answer to that question I did find this great site that has lots of fruit trees for sale. They have other kinds as well but I figure that if you're going to have a tree it should have fruit on it. I mean really, have you seen the prices of cherries at the grocery store?

When I was a kid we had fruit trees at our house but unfortunately we were the only house on the whole block that had GRAPEFRUIT trees! Everybody else had orange trees. I couldn't figure out how we got so unlucky. I hated grapefruit- and still do. So mostly we used them to throw at each other or to feed the cows that lived in the pasture across the street. Yes, cows do eat grapefruit. Oh yeah, and lawn clippings too- that was a great place to get rid of lawn clippings. Anyway, I must now find out which trees will grow in what climate and how many types of fruit trees I can have at my apartment- oh yeah, we're still in an apartment. I guess I'll have to leave it up to you guys to plant fruit trees- for now, but one day...

I too grew up with fruit trees (apple and pear) and long to plant some in my yard but I don't plan on staying in this house long enough to make the investment. Someday!

I think there are some varieties that bear fruit fairly quickly. I'd have to check some of the sites I've looked at to make sure though.

Hmmm...I still intend on growing something someday, but I don't know when. Inspriring, though.
