Just spent most of my "allowance" on some berry plants!
I went to Stark Brothers' online, i have been getting their catalogs for years but never got to get anything from them before.
I got Lingonberries, Patriot blueberries, Blueray blueberries, Frontenac grapes, Marechal Foch grapes and Frontenac grapes. I still want Edelweiss grapes, but its going to be hard to find them since the only grape vineyard/nurseries i found that carry them want to do 25 vine minimum orders. I don't have room for 6 vines, much less 25. No room to hold and then resell either.
Maybe i can get in on a large order with someone in the Gardenweb community. I think i have seen people do that before. They get together, make an order and have it shipped to a trustworthy ringleader who distributes them to the recipients and shipping is reimbursed.
Or i will have to make do with the 3 grapes i have just ordered.... which won't be all that bad, really. (!!!) I only got one of each in case they don't do well here, i won't be out more than the 3.
We have gotten some decent rain so far today, enough to make some big puddles. So that is a relief. Lots of thunder storms in the state but they are all skirting my area and it looks like that will be all the rain we get for the next 24-48 hours.
