Hi!

I have some volunteer jujube plants, if you folks are interested.  They are from 12 to 24" tall.  I don't know for sure that they will be fruiting.  You are welcome to them if you like.

Sorry!

I lost your answer, so if I don't answer one of your questions please try again!

Chris Byers thought it was too big for him to move. I noticed he is on your friends list, feel free to ask him.

I am in central Tempe, cross streets University and Hardy. Just give me a call (480 two six six 9815) when you want to come see it.

Thanks,
Lis

Well, Chris liked the fruit but decided the tree was too big. So if you would like to come see it, just let me know when. I am hoping to get grading done in the next two to three weeks. It might be possible to it dug out then.

Hi Folks!

Chris is coming to look at the tree this morning. I will let you know if he takes it or not. I'm not in a huge rush, just planning to put bareroot peaches in that spot.

Your ceramics are wonderful! My grandfather was a professional potter, so it is one of my favorite art forms.
