Playing with the landlord's head....

I live in a retirement community that has a lot of Bradford pears as springtime lawn decorations. I've started a low key branch grafting campaign, turning their flower trees into Keiffer, Ayers and Bartlett trees. The grafts are doing quite well - and I should have fruit this summer. Don't you know that management will be scratching it's head when I start to harvest ripe pears off their lawn decorations?? BTW, the other residents are in full support.
I like it. Glad to see a Bradford pear doing something useful. I realize that edible pears can be "messy" when the fruit drops, but I wish more people would do what you are doing.
