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.

Joan, thank you! It's an extremely low risk procedure. Lot of waiting time for eyedroos and sedative to take effect, then pop out the old lens snd pop in the new one. Then some more waiting time, then go home. I am really looking forward to having vision again in that eye. If it doesnt work, well. the other eye is still ok, so I'm not really any worse off.
Anyway, I'll post his it goes, unless Im still sleeping too late from the sedative.

Beautifil picture of bird and cherries. In snow! As someone who loves to feed birds but loves his cherries, I want to say "get away from my fruit". :-)

This year I'm hoping for a generous crop of Montmorency and Surefire sour cherries for pies and crisps. Spring is a long way away!

Daniel, I understand you are scheduled for cataract surgery tomorrow. I just want to let you know I am thinking about you and look forward to learning about your procedure and how you feel. Best wishes, dear friend.

Spud, I looked for the full video and did not find it. The trailer piques my curiously. I will put a Google Alert on the film and let you know if I find it. Please let me know if you do.

This piece interests me because of the ideas for a potential project at Laura's home in the woods. They live eight miles out of small town, Newport, WA and on the north side of Mt. Spokane. Their plot is 17 acres in a beautiful forest. It is not first growth, but third growth. Their home sits on a small hill left over from the Ice Age. I think it is a terminal moraine. The lower part of their land is the former ancient lake, now a meadow created by the Lake Missoula Floods.
One of the family members is a wildlife enthusiast, another is a millwright in a lumber mill. They both have a lot of mechanical skills and knowledge of the forest. I am so unfamiliar with gentle men, and they are as gentle as gentle giants. I know it is safe to trust them with children. They seem eager to help me plan and construct a nature reserve there.

It sounds like bread-baking weather to me!
