Patricia, that's a wonderful garden.
Joan, I love the bee balm. I've never heard it called anything else. I have purple and a pink. I tried red but it wouldn't take.
Corn has been plentiful for several weeks now. It's about ran its season here.

Oh! Spud, thanks so much, I had not seen this!  It certainly puts a different slant on things.  Amazingly enough I grew up in the Fingerlakes area of NY and know of the Experimental Station in Geneva. I definitely won't be tackling a 40-fruit tree, but am determined to at least try something.

Spud, I'm like you in that I've read all Daniel's postings on grafting and have gone to a few sites with more information about the topic. I have a very small space and only grow flowers at the present time. I do have room for one more tree - and when I saw the 40-fruit tree I thought it would be great to have the fruit of several trees in one tree. Now to research the best ones for South Texas, and get it planted.

Thank you Daniel for making it seem possible.

Barbara, I didn't know so many fruits could be grafted on the same tree.

Daniel, I've not been paying much attention to your grafting because I don't have room to grow many trees.  Perhaps I'll try some on my apricot tree that I plan on planting next spring (after I make sure it's healthy).

What a beautiful garden Patricia.  Lots of good things to eat.  Makes me jealous again : )

I like your ideas of things to do with sweet peppers.

Comment by Randall Smith on July 29, 2014 at 6:39am

Patricia, what are you going to do with all those peppers? Wow! Joan, my sweet corn is coming on. I've eaten several ears, and with my planting two rows at a time over several weeks, I should be eating corn for 5-6 weeks!

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 29, 2014 at 12:04am

Barbara, a beautiful photo; I like the artist aspect of the project and his ideas to do more. 

Daniel, I hope to see photos of your grafting projects as they develop! 

Comment by Sentient Biped on July 28, 2014 at 11:52pm
Patricia that is gardening at its finest!

Barbara, its becoming like the expression "give a man a hammer and he starts looking everywhere for nails". Now I'm thinking what else can I try to graft? That 40 variety tree is beautiful!

I may try adding some peaches to a plum. I think they are compatible. And an apricot. I have the sources for those.

This winter I tried whip snd tongue grafting several varieties of lilac. Only one took. Whereas all of the apples and pears grew successfully that way. Maybe I should try bud grafting several lilac varieties onto one shrub. The worst that can happen. is they dont take.

Daniel, this has to be grafting at its max.
