Home Orchard Society Scion Exchange 3.19.17

Today the Portland area Home Orchard Society had a scion exchange / propagation fair event in Clackamas, Oregon. I helped some with the set up yesterday, and again helped a bit with the event today. It was a lot of fun. Lots of people, especially home orchard nerds like me. I brought some handfuls of scion from my own trees - mostly the persimmons - to add to the already massive amounts. Naturally, now I have some more grafting to do, and did that this afternoon. I'll list the scions later.

  1. Wow, your exchange's well attended! The grafting folks kind of looked the same, wear the same kind of cloths where ever they are:-)
    Looks like scions are in buckets. Ours all in plastic Zip locks. I prefer your method but there's always a chance of mistakenly sticking the scion into the wrong bucket then woe is me. Your exchange is rather late. I guess most tree is still dormant in your area and you don't have to store the scion so long in the fridge like I did.
    Its so much fun, I really look forward to go there every yr and it feels like Christmas. Everyone is so excited and happy.
