turnips, beets, and sundries
took a stroll over to the garden this evening between viewing some senior thesis art exhibitions and visiting the coach just o see what was up...and stuff was up..the top photo proves there are turnips in the garden and the second one proves there is an entire row up and running...the green leaves and red stems in the next two photos attest to beets popping up...there will need to be some thinning soon enough...the garlic still looks robust ( fifth photo ) and we have some fairly lush stands of winter rye ( sixth photo ) that will be turned in around three weeks before planting day to put more organic matter into the beds...the "unofficial" season has started...the "official" one will be here soon enough.
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.
