garden coming of age
a day off work for some errands started out with early morning watering at the garden and the discovery that plant growth is turning into produce in a number of our plant populations...there have been cherry tomatoes on the vine for some time but they are beginning to ripen ( top photo )and will be utilized soon enough...the ears on the maize plants aren't so nascent anymore and begin to resemble the final product...flowers, pollen, and silk will collude to form kernels...we benefit...another maize plant had bean blossoms emerging on the vines wrapped around the stalk...beans soon enough...and the bottom photo shows us cucumbers ready to eat and tomatoes trying to catch up...we will have all the goods up and runiing within the next thirty days or so...then...harvest!
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.
