it is supposed to rain this evening so i decided to plant turnips before it did...while i was out there i was looking at the bed of alfalfa and winter rye ( top photo ) next to the spot i was planting turnips and realized there had never been potatoes planted there before...so i turned the green manure and reservoirs under...worked it with a hoe to break up the roots...then i added sphagnum moss, compost and vermiculite to the bed Second photo )...turned that in and hoed again...i chose eight spuds in peat pots off the deck ( third photo )...and i planted them ( last there photos )...if all goes as planned there will be spuds in july...there were more spud adventures...but that is the next post.
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.
