To Trump: Read This, Please.

The Week: The Best of the U.S. and International Media -- a fine weekly magazine -- printed the following one-page report on page 11 of its March 24, 2017 issue: "Briefing: Rescuing the Rust Belt: President Trump promised to reverse the decades-long decline of manufacturing jobs. Can it be done?"

Please, President Trump, read this page to find out about REALITY!

40 Pear Tree Grafts

Three major grafting days later, I have approximately 40 Bartlett and Spartlett Pear scions grafted onto our Asian Pear tree. I had cut off all the branches that had leaves and flowers last year, btw.

The scions kept in rainwater outside. These are the ones that I have left so far. I wonder if I could return them fruitfully? Or if I should save them until after I find out how many of the 40 grafts actually succeeded?

This is an experiment because most of these grafts take place in holes made where a smaller branch was cut off. All but one grafts are made NOT on the main trunk. A few are made as is recommended on websites, by cutting straight across the end of a full cut and placing the centers of the scions adjacent to the fiber just under the bark, where the sap flows.

I still have time to make more grafts -- especially if any of these fail, are knocked off, or lost to the winds, birds, etc.... WISH THIS TREE LUCK!
