Re: OT: giving away your age


I do collect and read back issues of Builletins, etc, so that is not a give away. I have been hybridizing iris for almost 20 years, but I did grow my first hybrid plant 57 years. An apple seed that produced a very nice tree, and I have a plant of it here on the farm, having moved pieces of it around several times and over several moves. The last one is not yet producing, but the original tree is still alive and growing well on my parents farm., and producing great fruit. My younger sister entered some as "Macintosh" in a fall fair and took first prize. I was away at University so had no say in this.

So, you are right, I'm not a spring chicken., but not because I read old Bulletins.

chuck you went and blew my image of you. I had you in the same box with J.
Ghio as one of the younger hybridizers. I found out yesterday that Ghio has
been at it for at least fourty years, and now I find you've been around the
block too?

perhaps I'm reading too much into the age of the bulletin you referenced.

I guess I'm going to have to beat myself with a wet noodle that I'm already
whining about the weeds in the seedling beds.

Too late to be doing this now, but perhaps if more time another day
will summerize highlights of article.
