Clear Creek Nursery

Last week I stopped by Clear Creek Nursery to check out their fruit trees and pick-up some Wisteria or Clematis…

Clematis

and they have an 80% off section!

I found 3 Jonagold apple trees for $10 ea.

So… I called Kyle and asked him to stop by and get the trees after work or, if there weren’t 3 apple trees, any 3 clearance fruit trees…

Kyle doesn’t listen well…

We are now the happy owners of 3 Jonagold apple trees, 1 Granny Smith, a Bosc pear and a D’Anjou pear…

D'Anjou Pear

Bosc Pear

All he heard was “Buy any fruit trees you can find”

Thank God he showed up at closing time!

He was going to have them start digging up bare root fruit trees!

He had to drive 20mph all the way home and had tons of cars backed up behind him 🙂

Now, where to plant them….
