Classes and more rootstocks!


Riley’s Farm kindly hosted our apple class where we prepared two ladies from Apples For Africa to receive a shipment of apple benchgrafts in Rwanda, East Africa. I was wondering if they would have any problems getting them into the country, but they already challenged the skeptical government bureaucracy there and got the support of the agriculture inspectors. They were quick studies and we sent them away with a thick binder that contains the world body of knowledge for growing apples in a tropical climate.

On the rootstock front, we got more Bud. 9 rootstocks and are taking orders again, and still have some M111 left. Sorry, still out of M7, the reverse of most years where we run out of Bud. 9 first and end up tossing a bunch of M7. If you’re thinking of ordering, do it quickly as first come, first served.
