    My husband called to say that Mardens in Waterville just got a whole bunch of trees, grapes etc....in stock and the prices are cheap. Not sure of the origin but he did mention flowering crab trees too.

    I sent him on his lunch hour.....hopefully he'll have some prizes for me to plant!

    Thanks! I have to go to Calais Friday morning. I'll swing by the store there to look for them. I'd love to get some grapes and a flower crab.

    It looks like they have some in Brewer too. I haven't stopped to see what they are yet... Maybe tomorrow...

    mpillow, thank you for the info. I went to Marden's in Calais this morning and bought the last of the grape vines. I wasn't thinking about the size of the trees this morning so I didn't think to switch vehicles with my husband today. We'll probably go back tomorrow for trees.

    Did your husband come home with anything?

    No :waa: :waa: :waa:

    He went over and looked, couldnt decide....ran into my dad and ended up at Kramer's in Sidney...the "blue" tractor store :no: :no:

    They are ganging up on me....if I have to have a farm then they want a tractor so *I* can have a bigger pasture, yada yada....and the haying attachment and the backhoe....I asked them if tractor tastes like chicken :rolleyes:

    I think they should have bought money trees !!!!
