[NAFEX] Why not field graft

Here's my 2 cents worth on bench grafting vs. field grafting:
I'm older, I'm a guy, and I don't like 'standing on my head' in the mud in the garden in the spring.
I'm older - so I'm prone to be a little set in my ways. "we've always done it that way before...."
I'm a guy - which is really important. Guys (me) are not flexible. My wife can just bend right down and tie her shoes. I have to find a chair to perch my backside against when I tie my shoes because my bender just don't bend so good anymore.
Finally, bench grafting in my shop in the late winter/early spring is pleasant. I get a good wood fire going in the stove, some tunes on the radio, and a nice stool to perch on, and I'm warm and happy. I think this improves my attitude enough that I get a much higher % take on my grafts, too.
If you like being outside, and you can bend, why not?! Go for it. But that's my input on the subject.
