    You need national PR. Get an article written about the project if you can. Where do you like in Ohio? I can't promise anything immediate, but maybe some time in the intermediate future i could make a visit for an article. Maybe we could do this 'tele' style, by correspondence? I'm thinking that GRIT or Heirloom Gardener might be very interested in this, but I need more information to make a pitch. Interested? Give me a few days to dream up a few questions for you. Do you have a website for the effort? All good things to know!

    Hey Brick my brother.
    The "Community Food Initiates" are dragging their feet. I want to do a " Fruit Mile" 8 trees wide. They don't think we have enough dedicated tree pruners. However have a smaller planting going on on 14th Apples, pears.honeyberry etc. Not as big as I want, but it's start. I need to make the "Officials" see put a couple bucks to be nation famous. Appeal to their greed as politions. 2 of 3 on our side (1 started the paw paw fest,) Just need to illustrate the economic benefit. So as to justify to the voters. Big University town. Pres of O,U, ? You wanna be behind the ball or out front.? First tree buyer/donation The Rest will roll down from there.

    I need to train the pruners.

    Hi RB. Might have noticed I was lost for a bit. No net. Will be back for winter. We will be holding a propagation event this late spring. My boy by "Old Man's Cave " ohio has 400 old tyme trees. Working on making new ones. Have a half mile 500 feet wide by the river. The vision is tree fruit for free. Call me a radical, crazy boy. But the city said ok. Have now over 60 trees and 150 blueberries 1/2 doz kiwi. You are the FIRST person I have said Hi to. Feel special Yet? Best to You.

    We have our 'own' IDigger, Redbrick, here working hard on preserving older apple varieties. And I think there are others, too, here at IDig.

    Rozie posted that. ^
    Please share any info you have on preserving older apples. I have an antique tree on my property.....documented to be over 100 years old. I really don't know what kind it is. Nice crisp, very white inside, juicy. Reminded me of a 'Northern' or a 'Winesap'.............
    Do you have a way to start a tree from seed? Johnny did it......so it must be able to be done.

    Thanks much.

    Thank you for thinking about it, Autumn! I just thought there might be some hobby photographers who could suggest a title or two. Worth a shot, right?

    All living things do one of two things: they either grow or they die. When they stop growing, they begin dying. Never forget, your mind is also a living thing.

    "Sow your seed in the morning and at evening let not your hands be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well" --Eclesiastes 11:6
