There was a wild apple tree in my back yard that the electric company cut
down. They would have just trimmed it away, but I saw the guys out there
and told them that it didn't make edible apples, so they could cut it down.
That was last year. This year shoots came out of the trunk in a big way.
So I cut a branch off of my Obelisk tree, and grafted it onto one of the
shoots. In the unlikely event that it takes, I'll do that with another
one. Then, at the end of the year (mid-Winter), I'll keep the bad shoots
trimmed back. My question is, is there any likelihood at all that the
graft will take?
If not, I'll try again next year at the proper time of year.
Those damned armadillidiidae (doodlebugs) are eating my strawberries.
Let's see how the like the carbaryl that will be arriving this Saturday.
