Daniel, you look wonderful! So bright and sparkly. Yes, a mighty large pupil. Your typing looks perfect to me ... can understand every sentiment you write.

I understand the emphasis on netting blueberries. What fruit do birds like as much as blueberries? I will plant those for a bird feast in the bird feeding station.

Daniel - great to hear it was a success! I have cataracts forming, but not ready for the procedure yet.

The pupil should get back to normal in a few days.  More importantly, now I can see to read, and graft, and enjoy the flowers and trees and birds and bugs.  Before the right eye vision was like looking through wax paper.  Very happy with that result.

Daniel, good luck with the cataract surgery. Just had my eyes checked, and they're forming. No surgery at this time.

Tow days ago, I "caught" a rabbit in my animal trap (to catch those nasty "piney" squirrels). I thought to myself, "Good, one less rabbit to feast in my garden". But my conscience got the better of me, and after several hours, I freed him/her. I don't mind sharing my greens--it's the seedlings (like beets last year) that I want to protect.

sorry about my typos.

Josn, we put a net over our blueberries. But not the hazelnuts. I didn't get one hazelnut. I don't mind tho. I also netted the mulberry and some of the sweet cherries and figs.

kind of a hassle on trees, not bad for bushes.

Patricia, it sounds like a nice life.

I have been thinking about starting some cold season crops next month. Not much - greens, radishes, scallions, something cabbage family. In a poly tunnel raised bed. Maybe.

That sounds healthy, Patricia. Just so the winter doesn't prevent you from the things you like to do. I've looked up your area on Google Earth and it looks like beautiful country. I remember the photos you sent us early in your correspondence with us.

I understand about the cherries, Daniel. I didn't get any blueberries last year off of three bushes. There were green ones on the bushes and when I returned hoping to find ripe ones, they were all gone. Guess I will have to get more bushes. Surely I can grow enough for me and the birds. I suppose the squirrels like them, too. Maybe the mice.

Patricia,  -16*C  means 3.2 degress F, I think. BBBRRRR!!! I hope the wind current doesn't change and bring your cold air here. 

How are you getting along this winter? Feeling OK, Eating well? How is Rick? I think of you two often. Does Rick do any gardening in his beautiful greenhouse during the winter? I suppose his trains keeps him busy.
