uh...spring needs to get a move on
this is a ten spud sampling of the fifty odd tuber i have chitting away down in the plant room...that there are fifty that are ready to be planted NOW when there is still snow on the ground is disturbing enough ( beyond finding room for all of them )...but i have even more that are still sitting dormant as well as plants setting tubers as i type...i have gone form scouring the interweb for sources of organic seed potatoes to having something of a local abundance in two seasons...did i neglect to mention the four new varieties the potato introduction station is sending next month? or the mashua tubers that are coming?...i see cyclical planting and harvesting in the near future...i don't see any reason to scale back the winter seed potato production though...no such thing as too many spuds.
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.
