sweet cherries, and plums? Oh look, here's a new variety of peach that is similar to Belle of Georgia. And apricots! I love apricots! I sat right down and made out my order for four dwarf fruit trees.
Then there's the matter of planting the trees: Somebody is going to have to dig four holes. The old saying goes, "Dig a ten-dollar hole for a five-dollar tree." A hole twice as big around as the room the roots take up, in other words.
Cliff is conveniently away, helping his brother at Higginsville with some project or other. Oh, the trees would wait until he gets home, but he didn't ask for or want the trees. It behooves me to head out there and at least try to dig the holes.
Wish me luck.
Indeed, what was I thinking?
