tubers and legumes
the winter vetch out back is beginning to bloom so it looks as if there will be seed for green manures in the gardens this coming autumn...and while we're on the subject of winter vetch, that wheat seed head that was snagged by some winter vetch tendrils two days ago ( second photo ) and distorted has been grabbed by yet another plant and is now in a horizontal position ( third photo ) who knows where it will end up before it ripens...the tuber part of this post is the spuds in the container in the fourth photo...and they are sharing the frame with the peas in the last...off to the community garden for some work and some maintenance in the morning...need to see if there's a need for some water...more on that later.
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.
