Daniel, thanks for reminding me of Cycle of Life page!

Those grafts look very healthy. I am eager to learn how the fruit progresses.

Barbara, thank you so much for the Monsanto list.  It's a very important topic for me, too.

Joan, that is truly wonderful news!! And a wonderful name too! I would love to invite you to also add the news to the Cycle of Life page, as a happy event!

Today I bud grafted some cherries and plums.  I wanted to convert 2 non-productive cherry trees into ones that we like, so I grafted buds.  If they take, next year I can cut the original branches back to the buds, then the buds grow and it's the new variety.    I also added 2 more varieties of Asian plum to a mature, nonproductive Asian plum tree, as pollinating varieties and to get those plums, and because I can.

These are the grafts I did on the same tree in June.  Grafting is really very easy once you get over the unknowns and read about it or take a class.

Hurrah, Joan! My farmer daughter's name is Emily Grace, named after my grandmother. All four of my kids included family names. I think it's a neat tradition. To some extent, they have followed suit.

My kids weren't breast fed, but about 6 months was when the odors began.

Comment by Plinius on July 26, 2014 at 1:03am

Something to do with breast feeding, perhaps? I knew a woman who was appalled at the diaper stench of her baby after she stopped breast feeding.

Congrats Joan.
I would love to smell her!! There is nothing like that new baby smell. Have you ever noticed it goes away at about six months.
