Howdy! It is good to be back in the saddle again. I'm looking forward to keeping you updated on all things related to GardenLine and horticulture through these weekly missives in 2017.

I love this time of the year, because it's time to get busy with fruit trees ... from stone fruit to citrus to avocado and everything in between.

Here's the 2017 fruit tree sale list as I have it today. I first posted it on Facebook about two weeks ago, and I've not had anyone tell me any information is wrong or needs editing, with the exception of one date change. If I missed something or made an error, I apologize. If you let me know about something that needs to be corrected or added, I'll update the listing on the GardenLine Facebook page.

I'm working on getting a couple of fruit tree experts on this Sunday's program, but even if I'm handling things on my own I encourage you to call in with fruit tree questions this weekend.
