forty-three degrees on april thirtieth
a chilly last day of april on the south end of the lake but things are coming along anyway...from top to bottom: jerusalem artichokes were never in doubt...there's the evidence...numerous sugar snap peas up...the intermediate wheat grass is green as could be...there are spuds in the ground as well as containers...the bed of ramps is doing fine in the cool..another native along with the sunchokes...and there is a fairly lush stand of winter vetch setting nitrogen and winter rye storing it...we are doing fine so far...oops! captioned the bottom photo incorrectly since i obviously uploaded a photo of garlic not winter rye/vetch...these things happen.
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.
