|Garter snake in lower left corner. Snow along top of frame.|
This is the first time I can remember standing in snow while grafting.
|Warm temperatures are required for grafts to knit together. The next four days look promising.|
I still have many short rootstock to field graft. I generally get on my belly to graft them. I will wait for the ground to get a little bit drier before I do that. There is much snow, standing water and mud.
