The other day my friend told me about a tree she bought at the Boise Costco while she was there for the weekend. It's a cherry tree but it has all types of cherries grafted onto it -- so you can get four different types of cherries on one tree.
I love cherries. Really, I do. So I was excited to tell Garry about it. And the next day I told him that I was going to Costco to see if out local Costco also carried these trees.
I was so excited to see that our local Costco not only had them but had lots. They had plum trees, apple trees, cherry trees, pear trees and then they had these combo trees where different varities were graafted in to one tree. And they were only $16 for a four foot tree!
I called Garry to see what he wanted me to buy (i.e., how many) and was dismayed to hear he did not want any of them. It's still literally freezing here, not exactly planting weather, and he wanted to know where I was going to plant it.
"But you knew I was coming! Why didn't you tell me you didn't want one before?" I asked. To which he answered that he thought I was just scoping things out -- on an expedition to see if they had them and no more.
That's silly. Who takes three kids across the valley to Sandy just to see if Costco has something? Truly, it makes no sense.
I'm tree-less. I'm cherry-less. But I know they are there. And as soon as I am strong enough to dig a big old hole, I'm buying one.
