In the order they were grafted. All pictures taken May 29.
|Red Leaf Plum. Selected because it appears to have viable pollen and produces many plums. As you can see this is growing at a right, smart clip.|
|Shenandoah Pear grafted on Birchleaf Pear.|
|Szego Chestnut. Tree tube was pulled of and is on ground.|
|This guy was clinging to the Tee post that was holding up the tree tube.|
|Mayhaws. This is a southern fruit. It may have difficulty with flowers freezing due to spring frosts but growers claim that the tree is cold hardy well below zero F. Scion wood is very skinny, almost like match sticks.|
|Hay #1 Black Walnut. Paper bag is a "Poor Man's" tree tube. Bag partially torn open to acclimate emerging shoots to the sun. Scion wood is stout....almost like grafting broom handles.|
|Illinois Everbearing Mulberry. Silvery tape is Parafilm.|
