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 project...it 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 plant...space may be the defining issue.
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.
