teosinte in winter
mostly beige and shattered, a few teosinte seeds are hanging on among the husks and silks...i harvested some last autumn and found a small percentage of what i test germinated viable...which, considering the paucity of the back yard population was fairly remarkable..the seeds i left outdoors have been spread by the traditional falling over of the parent plant and it will be of some interest to see if any germinate in spring...i have naturalized some seed outside but it is in a plot removed from where this season's plants stood so any germination will be verifiable as offspring of last season's plants...the plants in the basement are doing well with new growth progressing...that is another post for later.
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.
