beyond the seedlings...

a small early blue that was planted on the nineteenth of october has died back and produced the first indoor tuber for the seed potato is a drop...not large enough to cut and callus...but it will be a potato plant this coming spring...the red pontiac, all red, and yema de huevos in the second picture weren't even close to the top of the container fifteen days ago ( third photo ) but the have topped it now..that's a red pontiac in the fourth photo, leafing out nicely...and it's neighbor is a purple valley that is looking robust itself...twenty-one plants from tubers are up and running with some due to begin setting tubers this month...add in the seedlings ( all doing well so far ) and we have a potential abundance of spuds to may be the defining issue.
