from potatoes from seed to seed potatoes
i prepared a couple more containers out back because i had some potatoes still form the basement seed potato project ( second photo ) laying about ( and i wanted late season spuds too ) but my main thrust was to plant the tubers i derived from plants grown from last season's potato seed ( third photo )to try and grow a second generation...it was also time to plant a few more onions ( purple ones today )...so that's what i did...if all the spuds in the fifth photo come up there will be some transplanting...however i am not convinced of the viability of some of the smaller tubers...as a corollary to this some of the potato seeds i planted last sunday have germinated ...i will be transplanting those to containers as well as soon as they are big enough..i am greedy for tubers from seed...so sue me.
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.
