Apple - $65 each
(I recommend that you plant two or more apple varieties for cross pollination to ensure maximum yield):
Dwarf trees: (Not Dwarf Fruit!) Theses trees are slightly more compact that standard trees, this makes them much easier to prune and harvest. They actually often yield more fruit that standard trees, and also bear fruit 2 years earlier than standard sized trees. This year we have the following 6 varieties.
Norkent, Z2 Similar in taste to golden delicious, Red fruit over pale yellow, Harvest late august.
Goodland, Z3 My personal favourite eating and cooking apple, ripens early- to mid-September.
Odyssey, Z3  - Crisp and of excellent sweetness, comparable to Royal gala; ripens in late August; stores well into the New Year. 
Red Gemini Z2 - Crisp, juicy and of medium sweetness, eating apple, ripens mid-September.-
-Battleford Z2Very hardy tree, yellow with, dull red, juicy white flesh, ripens late August.
Prairie Magic, Z3 Crisp & delicious eating and cooking apple, ripens mid-September.

Standard trees: Grow much larger and need more room, you may often find yourself bringing a ladder to harvest and prune these trees. They usually start bearing fruit after 5 years. We offer the following 9 Varieties this year.

Gemini, Z2 - Crisp, juicy and of medium sweetness, eating apple, ripens mid-September.
Red Gemini Z2 - Crisp, juicy and of medium sweetness, eating apple, ripens mid-September.-

Unfortunately the opportunity seams to have passed for planting strawberries this year and are no longer available. The Seascape strawberries we had are actually taken directly from Ron's personal patch and have a narrow window to guarantee successful transplantation.

I recently asked Ron for more details about his Seascape berries and shared this description below, which makes me disappointed I never got around to getting any for myself even this year. Although there may be a window for some fall planting if you protect them over the winter with some thick mulch.

Seascape strawberries are superior to many others (fruiting in the year of planting, a June crop when local strawberry farms are selling theirs, a late crop stretching from August to October, fairly large berries, red all the way though (not white inside), and true, rich strawberry flavour, an experience most people of the last two generations (the days of large, white-inside, very bland berries) have never had. Oh, and there is another matter, of possible pesticide avoidance.

(If you may be interested in some for fall planting please contact Ron directly at ronlewis@unitz.ca, to make arrangement)

Specials: Occasional specials, not usually advertised in advance - Individually priced.
(When I start digging in my garden, who knows what'll 'turn up' (no, no, I don't mean a turnip!…).)

I also have wild raspberries and gooseberries growing all over the back 40’.  They are very hardy, but produce limited and poor quality fruit compared to the varieties we carry, but I do know that some people prefer these wild varieties. I would be happy to dig up any for anyone interested at $3/cane, or 2 for $5.

I also have a few quite large lilacs the I dug up from yard. I'm unsure of the variety but always have light purple blooms. If anyone is interested in any of these I'm sure we could come up with something. 

Also there was someone at the gardening festival looking for some wild blackberries, which I also have all over the yard. These are very inconsistent in actually fruiting and I've really only been treated to them a few times over the last 10 years, but she wanted them just for their aggressive thorns, so if anyone else is interested let me know.

The last thing I can be easily convinced to share with anyone interested in some comfrey from my yard, but I have to give you a huge disclaimer along with it and share my experience below. I do strongly suggest doing some of your own serious research before requesting any comfrey and reluctant to share the "gift" with someone uneducated about it.

Once it's established, it's almost impossible to eliminate and it's slowly taking over my yard. Any small fragment of the root that is not eliminated will continue to grow (in fact it will regrow as many new plants). There was a small amount in my back yard, but when we dug up the old septic system and did some foundation work, we accidentally distributed parts of the roots all over the yard and it just keeps coming back. 3 years of lawn mowering some patches hasn't stopped it from coming back. Any attempt to dig it up results it more sprouting from the same spot from the retained roots (that go down like a million feet or something crazy), I also built a huge flower bed over top of a few patches and covered them with landscape fabric, but they are still poking out. It grows up quite fast, then the massive leaves die and fall to the ground, further rotting quite fast,

You probably wonder why anyone would possible want any of this, but it does have some other great properties. It's a great compost accelerator (just don't mix in the crowns) and helps pull up some deep nutrients from it's long roots, and actually makes a great companion plant for fruit trees. There are also people that swear by it's magical abilities as a poultice and that it can be used to heal broken bones in record times.
