Omy Gosh!  Yes!, yes, yes, .... I have little bitty nectarines growing on my tree!  My very first fruit tree blossomed and I actually have little fruit. Such a wonderful first!  If same happens with plum, figs and goji I shall be doing a huge happy dance!  Gardening is addictive and wonderful!  I actually ran from garden to my computer to tell y'all.  LOL silly ole woman.

Thank you all for your sincere concern and thoughts. It means more to me than you know. I'm fairly much nonsocial except here. I have been participating in a fruit growing forum, and may get into the local home orchard society, on retirement. That will be an outlet for horticultural tendencies.

I will tell ning how to get an account and log on, if I become unable to. You are certainly right, I worry about people who I have come to care about on here, when there is no activity for a while. Some very active members vanished into thin air. and I never found out why. One member was killed in India, a couple of years ago, and I have been unable to learn more about what happened.

Anyway, I appreciate your concerns and thought more than you can know.

Back to the horticultural pursuits - it's saturday. Time to plant the seeds that were soaking. Then check on some grafts, probably not growing yet and feeling like the watched pot that never boils, but also a fun thing to watch.

Daniel, I'm think I'm one of the many people who are at a loss for words about your health although I certainly agree with the comments of others. I am long on admiration for how you and Joan are handling your health issues. Since you have earned your vacation hours, along with any sick benefits, there is very little need to worry about causing a burden to anyone by taking them. If it were me, I would most likely take all my vacation and sick time and combine it with disability and just go home and enjoy my garden. You obviously are a stronger person than me. Please know we all care about you.

Yes Joan, I try to keep a ground-cover on everywhere in my yard.  

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 4, 2015 at 8:40am

Nice to hear your work (or not) plan Daniel.

Comment by Randall Smith on April 4, 2015 at 8:08am

I see "light at the end of the tunnel", Daniel. Taking a week off evry month sounds like a good idea. Plus, you ARE close to taking every week off! And continue with the comments here. I love reading about your gardening adventures.

Comment by Plinius on April 4, 2015 at 1:25am

I'm glad you'll get extra puttering time, Daniel! And Joan has a point: we should all point out to the people we live with how to leave a message on AN. I know it costs a lot of nervous energy when someone disappears...

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 3, 2015 at 5:36pm

Your report of taking a week off per month starting July 1 gives me some comfort. 

Daniel, will Ning or someone else contact us if anything changes and you can't contact us. We do worry, you know. I hope I am not smothering you but I feel as though you are my brother and only sibling. You are young enough to be my son, but our cancers seemed to cancel out the age differences. 

Puttering full time is so much fun. There are always things to do ... or not. I hope you have chairs and footstools arranged around the properties so you can catch a little nap whenever and where ever you want. 

I have no grass to watch grow, and I really enjoy watching my Colorado Spruce grow! 

There is always part time work for a man with your skills and training and experience and probably closer by. 

Comment by Daniel W on April 3, 2015 at 4:41pm
Joan, I have so much vacation built up, starting in July I will take a week off per month. That will burdon other people but they will have to live with it. That goes to Nov, maybe I can make it last another month. Im done here March 4 next year.
After that I dont know. I might have the most putterred in yard in the NW. Or might find more limited part time work.
