« Last post by Monroe on Today at 06:35:57 PM »
yes I'll need reading glasses I bought a cheap pair to get me by for now then when I get the exact power I might need I'm getting a couple pair of safety glasses with bifocal. I did get some good shades to wear.

Do you need reading glasses Monroe?  Bobby sees wonderfully for distance and pretty good for reading, but not perfectly for the reading. The only reason he is getting glasses is for the bifocal part and the transitional lenses that turn dark when outside.

You should look at the pics I posted how I set mine up using 2x4's. You can do that now and use a 2x4 for the bottom and middle rail and be done with it for good and not have to worry about the wind. It's not much more expensive than buying new Tee's and corners. You can also make it a little taller if you go that route.

Just trying to help so bug me if you want more details.

Sorry to hear about that Chip. It sucks when something like that happens. Just keep your head up and chugging along. It will all come together!

Rabbit I'm doing great. I'm through with the drops in the right eye and into the second week with the left. I have the Toric implant in each eye which will eliminate wearing glasses. Thanks for checking on me and I also wish DB success and anxious to hear from him.

Seed Exchange / Re: Chironja Orangelo - (citrullus lanattus)
« Last post by woodchip gardener on Today at 04:20:19 PM »
the proganics site originally had some seeds for sale, but looks like they were out of stock.  i did see they have some grafted trees up on amazon, but at 70 bucks plus shipping you would really want them to pay that.

https://www.amazon.com/GRAFTED-Chironja-Orangelo-produce-Prorganics/dp/B00R9UBQZC/ref=sr_1_48?m=A2H8NFNSSWQAWD&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1513202683&sr=1-48

i would be careful about ordering this though.  upon reading more into citrus info,  it seems there is an outbreak of 2 major diseases in the citrus industry right now and it has been wiping out groves.  the gov't has been buckling down on citrus cuts so you don't propogate a sick tree.

i did find an organization in california that propogates and distributes budwood.  if you are willing to do their paperwork to set up an account, you can get budwood for 2.50 ea.  there is no guarantee they will have it (they supply the california citrus growers first) but since this is an odd variety, you might luck out.

I put them outside on the deck on warm days and back inside until the temperature in  HT stays above 40F over night. If the temperature dips down a little below that it is ok since cole crops don't mind the cold.

My more sensitive plants I wait  for the soil temps to warm up otherwise they will just sit there unhappy.
