I'm interested to hear what kind of tree and perennial seeds you are planting in the ground this fall.

So far I have planted a bunch of Pear Seeds, Black Walnut and Heart Nut.  I'm heading out on the AT today to do some seed collecting.  If you want to share, I'd also like to see pictures of seed projects and propagation stuff you have going on.

I am searching in vain for any type of wild peach or plum.  Ended up ordering some from Twisted Tree Farm.   I have some Italian plums that are pretty healthy.  I'd really like apples to work but I don't have high hopes.  
 
Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
