Grafting is typical, low cost and successful for the amateur. 1 to 2 weeks you have a new tree, and if yiu want it on its own roots just plant it deeper than thd graft union.

I have over 100 varieties of apples. I have sold scionwood-but not regularly.

This always interests me. you're priced right on.
I too, am propagating like mad. 3500 apple trees- these cost me 85 cents and 25cents more to graft. now growing, weeding, watering, fertilizing, mortgage adds the expense. and then there's profit if you're to sell them. which I am, but I'm also keeping 3000 to grow. It'd be a pretty good turn-around to sell these all and do it all again-even at 6.00. but time is the deciding factor here. retail $12-me dig and send+freight, $8 you dig and pickup.
Let me know of orders you might want to go in on- bulk is better.
From what i see, the delivered CSA near big towns(Seattle)n run about 500 to 1000 per year. the little at-farm baskets for 300 per 22 weeks is meager. 3- to 40$ per box is affordable fair and if the farmer is doing it right-things all clean and good quality, then there's no complaint.

still, I stick to the subjective.. Weed: a plant out of place, an unwanted plant. pretty simple. All organisms have a place, and I guess if it planted itself there, it must be the "right place"? nah. I'm culturing my belief system in the stewardship of the land. After 40 years of rouging "weeds" I have learned a few pointers. I love diversity. plants that were once weeds become my "friends" as i learn about them. So ignorance produces the subjective "weed" or "plant" All organisms have value. It's my life task to learn as much as I can about everything... so I don't pull out a "plant" instead of a "weed". lol    gadzekx
