BIG NEWS!!! WHAT WE BOUGHT IN BOISE TODAY WILL ASOUND YOU!!!

The big Home Depot "Black Friday" sale was wrapping up, so we went down to take a look.  There it was, in an "On Sale" box.  Out of all the items in this box, there was only one of these, so we grabbed it and took it home.

Welcome home, to our NEW BARTLETT PEAR TREE!!! 

Thanks to Samples Boi, I'm on the Harbor Freight Tools mailing list.  They had a big sale going on too, and I was able to pick up a POLE SAW (a mini electric chainsaw on a long stick) for only $49.99!!!  I've seen these things in action at Tahoe, making short work of combustible branches.  I'll make good use of it here and when I go to Tahoe, this spring!!!

Probably not.  Every time I look at our blooming D'Amato pear tree, I think of pears.  To really produce, it needs another pear tree nearby, preferably a Bartlett.  The new tree will be within 100' of the existing one, which is doing great!

100 feet!    We didn't know what 100 feet was in San Francisco.  Here, measuring the property from one corner to the other, diagonally, is more like 100 YARDS!

Sorry you don't have access, Big Boy.  Samplesboi turned me on to them for that in wall camera, which works GREAT!  Now, I have access within a couple of minutes drive. 

YOU have access to a street streetsweeper factory, railroad tracks and EHV power lines.

Spanky is the powertool equivalent of those guys who brag about their fancy guitar collection but they've never been in a band. Tom's Harbor Freight saw will get used to get things done.

You can name the Bartlett Pear tree the 'Poo Tree'

Why would you possibly think Boise has a Harbor Freight, but Chicago doesn’t?

There is one 6.2 miles away.

For you, it may as well be on the moon.  You would never go to such a place.

That IS the point, isn't it?  I'll use the thing here at Maison Boisee from time to time and take it to Tahoe this spring.  I'll get jobs done.  Spanky is the kind of guy who will special order the $900 one, brag to high heaven about it, then discover he can't lift the thing with his T-Rex arms.  Not to mention that he has nothing to trim on his postage stamp sized yard to begin with.

I've ordered a custom saw to fit atop my $2000 mini-fridge. You cannot afford.

That’s not true at all. I have been there, which is how I am able to remark on their very low quality. I am pretty sure I have even posted about it before.

Your lot is a lot is a 1/2 acre, right? Mine is 1/3rd. I have close to 20 trees. My trees are maintained by a professional arborist.

Just like your 600 pounds of deadweight is maintained by a professional chef, right?

the best part about your shytlot besides the face that it is over 100 miles away from me, is that nice wall you have around it
