Owner's comments

Grafted scions of Tom Putt onto MM111 and Antonovka. Decent growth after one season in the nursery, trees have grown from 3-inch scions to 3-foot tall whips. Second year trees grew another 2'. Grafted an additional 3 trees onto EMLA111 (scions from a different source), these were not as vigorous as those grafted in 2011.
