Total eclipse is 60 miles north of me. I have welding goggles, but will have to check if they are rated 14 or better. My sister told me that when young, we used to have contests to see who could look at the sun the longest. Based on that, I think the "going blind" part of the warnings is over-stated. However, I don't doubt part of my eye problems are related to those contests.
Thanks, Thomas. I just might drive down there--200+ miles or so.
Back to the garden: Asparagus is winding down, as are snow peas, but here comes a variety of other greens. Had my first green beans last night. Kale, chard, brocolli are ready. And, of course, I have a lettuce/spinach salad every day. I may be turning green before the summer's over!
Daniel, will they ever take you off of the oral chemo?
Great news, Daniel!
Being an avid gardener and outdoor person I think this group would be a good place to announce that a total sun eclipse will be in the U.S. in August, 2017. The eclipse path will start in Pacific Ocean and enter Salem,Or..... and continue across U.S. to arrive at Charleston, SC and then out into the Atlantic Ocean.
In your state, Ky, the total eclipse can be fully viewed in Hopkinsville, KY.
Many people are reserving camping spots near the eclipse path.

Good news, Daniel! Me thinks it's the garden work that's keeping you going, not the meds!
We got an inch of welcomed rain overnight. I never heard a thing.
I hope everything goes well! Please keep us informed!
Your daylily is beautiful! Are you going to name it? I like the yellow, touched by apricot and the suggestion of ripple in its edge.
Mad Scientist, I like your Dallies, especially the Luxury Lace. It's beautiful.
I've seen a couple of garter snakes (maybe the same one) in my yard recently. Hopefully, it will get a mole or chipmunks.
How did your doctor visit go, Daniel?
