somewhat past middle age
we're sixty day into summer with another thirty-four yet to run and the garden is beginning to show its age in places...the maize is still being stalked by the squirrels...this was expected...the last of the potatoes ( top photo ) are beginning to show signs of finishing up and the blooms are beginning to fade on some of the jerusalem artichokes as they begin to seriously set tubers...then again the beans are running strong and the cucumbers ( second photo as if you didn't know what that was ) are still producing as well...in other beds there is young spinach up ( third photo ) and there are alien looking sugar snap peas ( they come from pods after all ) poking up through the soil...the season is aging but it isn't used up yet...stop by there's more harvest and the preparation for winter to come.
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.
