two thirds of the three sisters
the hopi blue maize plant in the top photo has a pole bean companion today and that bean has twenty-six sisters up and running so two thirds of the three sisters have arrived...the squash goes in this coming weekend...there's anew asparagus seedling up among the potatoes...that's six in that particular bed all form naturalized seed...the mashua seems happy in the shade from that ollala but it is destined to grow much larger if things work out...acquire red blooms a swell...the bottom photo is of some new zealand white clover chugging away and fixing all the nitrogen we can handle in cahoots with its rhizobia friends...things are moving along...stop in sometime.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
