If you get one of those miniature fruit trees, you absolutely have to tell me if it bears any fruit because I have always debated buying them but have been afraid they would not bear fruit/be a waste of time/money.
most fruit trees you need 2 of the same so they pollinate, if you ever decide to give them a try you need to remember to ask if it needs a pollonator. From what I understand, very few don't need a 2nd tree to produce fruit.

I knew that was crazy cheap and was just figuring that there was a tie in to feed or something e.g. buy X number of bags and get a deal on some chicks...
Either way that's not a bad price and I think I will still stop by the store to see what else they've got...
you can get chicks and chickens really cheap at livestock auctions. They're usually only a couple bucks apiece in Vernon. Check local auctions if you're interested in chickens, you could be getting eggs sooner rather than later this way for around the same expense. Also you'll need to keep them fenced in or they'll eat your entire garden. You can let them into your garden when you've completed harvesting for the year and they'll clean up whatevers left and also debug it for next year. Good luck!

I actually bought and now have two of the miniatures I was talking about i.e. a lemon and a lime... and that was one thing I double checked... that they are supposed to be self pollinating...

I'll just have to wait and see though if they were telling the truth...

Btw and noticing where your location is resolving to... just curious if you are someone I know from my work over there... since it is kind of odd to see someone from California on a Southern Tier NY forum...

No, I actually live in cny/nny, (depends who you talk to as to which part it is). I drive truck and am all over the place so my location is rarely local.

Ah ok and let me guess...

Are you sometimes using your cell phone with data tethering sometimes to log onto the site ? The reason I ask is that the few times I have posted here doing that I noticed my location was also just listed as "United States"...

Well looking at his first posts in this thread...

He wasn't acting like our troll normally does on the site... and actually was offering fairly sound tips / advice that had to do with what we were talking about... so he's got my thumbs up...

That is as long as the two of you stop talking about who is wearing nylons when you're out and about - lol !

Lol I'm not your troll. Just sharing some gardening tips because that one poster said she thought the fruit trees would be a waste of time and money, if s/he doesn't know about cross pollination for fruit trees it could be a waste of both for her/him.

And also why buy baby chicks and raise them and feed them for months before getting an egg when you can buy grown layers for about the same price? Just trying to be helpful and save these posters a little greif and time.

Thats true. but after leaving the site of transfer to a new location will take up to two weeks for the hens to lay eggs again.

to raise hen's is not feasible these days, your talking about buying growing mash to start and then feeding.

growing rooster's for meat would be more worth it knowing that they eat veggie scraps and insects whre the Hen's dont eat those things. so for raising rooster for food is that there is the fun of cutting the heads off, gutting and hanging, boiling water to dip and pluck the feathers and freeze. it does taste better then store bought and more meat on the bones for sure.

Your choice!

For growing fruit trees....pollination helps and analyzing the soil might be needed if there is a growing problem.

Thank you for the info. I would never have thought about pollinating and, knowing me, I'd have only bought one and whined that it didn't bear fruit! Thanks!
