pgp season firsts

there is hopi blue maize up at the pgp ( second photo )and i said i would come back tot he photo of zea diploperennis ( top photo ) in my back yard when it did to explore the family resemblance... not exact copies but obviously relatives....which will become even more apparent as the plants of the intermediate wheat grass plants from kansas ( from accession C3-2627 ) has begun to flower and is on the way to producing seed heads...several others are not far behind so soon there should be some indication of what sort of yield they will produce...which is the point of the whole exercise...especially since i have yield data from wheat as a comparison...something to combat summer complacency are already in the mail to the land institute...more as it comes up...planting in the community garden tomorrow...more about that later.
