Dwarf Fruit Trees by Frank Albert Waugh (1869 - 1943).

This book is a handbook for the home orchardist. The propagation, pruning, choice of variety, and management of dwarf fruit trees, specifically apples, pears, peaches, and plums, are outlined. In addition, there is a section on berry bushes. It is geared towards gardeners in the United States of America and Canada. ( A. Gramour)

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/dwarf-fruit-trees-by-frank-albert-waugh/

    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38024
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Hello Amy -

I'm glad I read to the second page looking for a project to contribute to as I really love gardening and have a number of fruit trees in the yard that I know nothing about. This project should be a lot of fun and will be super informative, too!

I would like to claim sections 0-5 to start with.

Thanks - Ian

Hi Ian,
I have been adding a few dwarf trees to the yard each year lately and it is a little orchard now. I love them. It was awesome to find an old book on the subject.
Section 0-5 are yours.
Thank you!
Amy :D

I'd like to claim section 6, if I could!

This will be my first recording though! I haven't posted a 1 minute test yet, but will be doing that later this week. Also, I'd like my name to show up as "K.L. Sinclair".
