seasonal overlap I
came home from work this evening to find the early blue plants in the top photo had pretty much finished their season so i dug in and was pleasantly surprised to find a dozen tubers of various sizes...none are huge so they will all be "drops" when i plant them later this spring...they are without doubt early blues and i will be interested to see how their season develops since the parent tubers for these plants came form the same plants that produced last seasons potato fruits...call me greedy if you like but i would like to find more of those this year...the indoor teosinte is moving along and if you look closely you will see that the leaf node at the top of the plant ( fourth photo )has produced four rather than three ears..it has been a pretty good evening...the indoor season is winding down in favor of the outdoor...still, the two are connected.
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.
