After a couple days of filming, a week of work, a lot of being mad at my cheap camera’s autofocus and a lot of editing… it’s here!
In the film I cover how to perform three grafts: the whip and tongue, the side veneer graft and the cleft graft. I graft nectarines onto peach, loquats onto loquat and apple onto apple, plus cover some of the crazier cross-species grafting you can pull off. I talk tools (and how cheaply you can graft!) and show off some healed grafts so you can see how your fruit trees will eventually end up.
You’ll also learn how to lose your fear of grafting forever.
The film isn’t perfect, as the focusing on the camera at points was a bit off (we re-shot grafts multiple times and still had issues), so that’s why I’ve decided to offer this film on a donation basis, with all donations going towards the purchase of a professional camera.
Now – even though it’s not perfect – it really IS a good instructional and will get you started painlessly down the road to grafting nirvana. I’m just a perfectionist and the minor camera blurs drive me nuts.
After watching a lot of reviews, I’ve decided to save up for the Canon 70D since it does both excellent video and still shots. I can only take things to a certain level in Photoshop with my current camera – a better one will be a huge help, particularly with photographing insects, fungi, seeds and, of course, grafts.
So this morning I made a handy chart:
Isn’t that great?
Don’t you want to donate a HUGE amount now and get a grafting video as our gift to you for supporting this noble cause?
Please give. Think of the children.
Thank you, folks.
BTW, if you don’t have any money to donate, I think you can just download Get Grafting! for free by donating $0.00. I’d rather have you take the film if you’re short on funds. Seriously, don’t feel obligated to give. If the info will help you grow more of your own food, take it.
