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 Saturday

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.
Comment by Plinius on Saturday

Brooklyn Grace Staab was born yesterday about noon, 9 pounds, 9 ounces. Mother and baby doing well. May come home today.

Here's what's coming out of my garden onto my plate: sweet corn, grean beans, peas, kale, collards, chard, lettuce (getting bitter and going to seed), cucumbers, summer squash, carrots, onions, new potatoes, and all kinds of herbs, like dill and cilantro and chives. It's really overwhelming. Oh yes, brocolli and cabbage, too!

Any news of your granddaughter, Joan?
