    That would be a great fit for Wills!!

    I certainly hope the new owner(s) are as carrying and thoughtful as the currant owner(s).

    Whom ever buys it, I hope the best for them.

      Best of luck to the seller and buyer. I would have put in an offer for the property, but I'm pretty sure that would have blown my fig budget... for the rest of my life...

        I'd love to see the prospectus financial statements. I've always wondered how much money large nurseries bring in.

          845k doesn't seem like much for 8 commercial acres, their long standing reputation & their sleek website.

                    I wish! Although I am thinking of approaching a local nursery about supplying them fig trees to sell next year.

                    Have to start small ...

                    I have considered that myself. If you ask about fig trees in Colorado, you'll get shown a ficus Benjamina or simular.

                              You don't want me to paint that picture here. It just wasn't a pleasant experience.

                              While It may seem mean to pick on Funny man about this I would like to point out that a couple months ago I was at his place and we stopped and ate at a Hardees. About halfway home from his place, a 3 hour trip I started sweating........next day I did not get out of bed till noon. The funny man said it was my fault for getting a chicken sandwich at a burger joint. So his trip to Steak & Shake was cosmic retribution. Anything short of death he had coming.

                                That was because I thought that you was being like a wimp, that is until it happened to me. That was miserable and now I feel bad a little I guess.

                              Llehsreh, did you have your Jalapeno crunch burger with some of my Pepper sauce on it? Or is Wills hording it all for himself?
