Franken-Tree

if you have been following my blog for a while
you know that we purchased a mountain cabin
last year
and have been working on it 
in bits and pieces
the interior
while not perfect
is 
perfectly livable
and even a bit
charming

spring has sprung
in our little mountain community
and we are planning our garden
sprinklers are going in
along 
with raised beds for vegetables
our berries and fruit trees have come through the winter looking strong
and 
we have been sprouting seeds while waiting for warmer days
lots of work
for homegrown fruit and veg,
summer evenings in the company of our well-pollened bees,
and an unobstructed view of 
this
FrankenTree
this little sweetheart
is a plum tree that bloomed last year
with 
just a few pieces of fruit
that 
never fully ripened
so hubster
being a mad scientist type
felt
it would be perfect
for grafting
so
under each brown paper wrapping
is a graft
from
a plum tree
a pluot tree
a peach tree
and
a nectarine tree
it seems a bit nutty
but if it works
i will be up to my elbows
in stone fruit salad
