I must be really right eye dominant.   For 2 years, vision has been a constant and losing battle.  It was hard to see words on the computer.  Since this page is about gardening, it was difficult to see when grafting - important for keeping fingers as well as aligning cambium.  And portioning out seeds, and monitoring root formation on cuttings, inspecting buds, and reading garden guides.

This morning pupil size is back.  The computer screen looks brighter and more colorful. 

Back in business.  :-)    New lens, new muck boots, 2015 started very nice.

Daniel, I think I'l print your photo to scare away my rabbits! Cliche humor. Happy to receive a positive report on your eyes.

Six inches of the white stuff overnight. First of the season. I'm happy for the cover over my strawberry bed, especially since it's supposed to get REALLY cold the next few days.

I'm so glad you can see better, Daniel!

You're right, Daniel, the Steller's go crazy over peanuts. When I put some out in the feeders they start flocking around even before I clear out. The scrub jays love them too.

Joan, if your side of the state has similar bird species to here, you would have a lot of Steller's Jay. My book says they like all berries, and also like hazelnuts and peanuts. They are also said to be good insectivores.

Patricia - I'd be glad to send you one of my vinegar starts and you could try grafting it onto your totato.

Vinegar is made from alcohol by bacteria

Patricia, add a little oil with your vinegar and you have a ready made potato-tomato salad.

Glad to hear the good news Daniel.  New eyes are great.

Just heard on NPR about grafting a tomato plant onto a potato, aka the "tomtato." Apparently it yields cherry tomatoes above ground and potatoes below. AKA "ketchup and fries."
