My last post might make some people ask…why would you graft tomatoes, especially in your bedroom.  The answer is, to make your wife crazy.  Well, that and more:  This year we are offering more than 40 varieties of tomatoes, many of which are heirlooms that don’t necessarily have the vigor or disease resistance of today’s hybrid varieties.  If take a disease resistant and/or vigorous rootstock and attach a great tasting heirloom scion on top, we end up with a more productive and tasty-as-ever tomato.  This is also routinely done with nearly all fruit trees, many ornamental plants and even other veggies like squash.
