Got home from a luncheon appointment yesterday to find out that UPS had
dropped off a box from Pinetree Seeds. Turned out to be 5 Latham red
raspberry plants and a dozen Purple Passion asparagus roots. I didn't
order them and there was no paperwork with them so called Pinetree and
asked about them. The lady that was manning the phones said there was no
record on the computer and she thought it was strange that it happened.
We both got a big laugh when I told her I got someone else's order in
January too. Question is, what are the odds of that happening twice to
one person?
I thought maybe their computer was giving me gifts because I am such a
loyal customer, more than likely it is human error somewhere. Still,
what am I going to do with raspberries meant for northern climes and
asparagus that I have no prepared bed or place to put.

Stay tuned Rocket Rangers, all will be resolved Monday when the rest of
Pinetree's staff comes back to work. More news later by special decoder

George, enjoying a beautiful morning
