I noticed that my volunteer hawthorn was showing green and almost leafed out. See, the birds do help us, sometimes.  I just grafted it the other day.  Glad I did because my favorite wife chopped the one I grafted last year.  Hopefully, she will be more tolerant of this one.

Fedco just sent me a notice that the scions I ordered are in the mail.  With the last predicted freeze here happening last night, and milder weather predicted ahead, I'll be out grafting those soon.  Blue Pearmain, Golden Russet, Freedom, Mutsu.  I haven't decided which goes where yet.  I have one Geneva 222 rootstock and a lot of branches to choose from.

I also have some plum scion to graft and I set aside prunings from Jonathan to topgraft a multigraft, replacing various varieties with just Jonathan or Jonared, a red sport of Jonathan that I mix  up with the  original.

Daniel,

Isn't springtime wonderful?  Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for my 2022 rootstocks from a new source.  I'm eager to make some grafts.  Cross fingers.  I've been enjoying seeing various native herbaceous perennials reappearing from the ground throughout the woods.  It's also a chance for me to eat some new dandelion leaves or flowers ("spring bitters").  There are also some native plants that I snack on.  Fresh springtime vegetables.

Reinettes.
