Making Over An Old Orchard

Countless farms and dooryards of the United States have orchard trees in larger or smaller number that are practically useless. These can be made over, by proper grafting, so that they bear the finest varieties of fruits. The picture illustrates the way of rehabilitating an old apple tree by grafting all of its larger limbs. The tree is thus entirely transformed, and may come to bear fruit of the most delicious quality.
