Thanks Lucky
Hey Lucky, my mulberry grafts are looking great. I even got a few cuttings
to root. I have mulberry fruit on some of the grafts.

I've got several Che grafts on OO that are pushing leaves through the Parafilm. I stuck a couple of pieces on mulberry again, just to see what might happen.
Think all the pears are leafing out - only one I didn't know if it was going to make it was Tom's pear, but I think it's gonna survive.
The jujube hasn't leafed out yet, but it's still got green cambium(I checked it one day this week), so it's just taking its time.
Didn't get around to planting the Pseudocydonia seeds til last weekend - most were beginning to sprout, and I think I noticed one pushing some leaves yesterday.

If that pathetic little Sal's Fig doesn't make it, let me know - I've got a half-dozen or so cuttings rooting that Doc Lisenby sent me.
Also have several big-fruited mulberries - Pakistan, Cat's Tail, Giant Black, that I got from Dan Hemenway, down in FL - grafted some of the smaller stuff and stuck the larger cuttings in to root. They look good now, but time will tell as to how well they'll do. May be able to send you some of those later.
