spuds and mashua

the spuds growing from tubers down there are showing their own brand of diversity in leaf and stem structures... the first four photos from the top down are red pontiac, purple valley, early blue, and ollala each with different characteristics ( some of which is doubtlessly due to their different places on the timeline to maturity...but some stem from the fact that they are four different varieties as well )...some, like the craigs snowwhite, will be finished soon...others will run into april...still looking forward to a fair harvest of seed tuber for the gardens come spring...the bottom two photos are of the mashua plant that has sprung is in the process of deploying soon as those are out the nasturtium family traits will become obvious...more as that comes along.
