mashua and teosinte
it seems to have been a day for shriveling...the two mashua tubers that i managed to produce this past season have been doing okay in a paper bag...until now (first photo )...they are showing signs of going south so i took them into the basement and put them into peat pots filled with a potting soil/compost mix and put them under the light with the rest of the denizens ( second and third photos )...it's getting crowded down there ( fourth photo )...some of those teosinte plants are pushing a foot in height and will have to find more spacious quarters soon...so i ordered another grow light fixture and prepared two large ( two feet in diameter at the top and eighteen inches deep ) containers...as soon as the fixture arrives there will be a transplanting post.
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.
