Boy, you really are hooked aren't you? We discovered that a neighbor a
block away has a big plant sale every spring and now we plan to stay home
that weekend to shop it. This lady sells $3-4,000.00 worth of plants over a
one week, two weekend sale, all in her front yard. You can't get in her
backyard due to the raised beds, the green house, the potting shed, think
you can get the idea now. She and I trade plants on occasion now so she
usually tosses in a bunch of new stuff every time we stop by. I just took
her a loquat I started from seed but don't know where she will put it. Got
20 more started as she wants me to set up a section at her sale next year.
When you have an addiction it takes money to support you will even sell
your baby plants to get more.
