late season spuds
short post about two items...first it seems that at least one of the potatoes i harvested from the vines i grew in the basement over the winter has sprouted ( top two photos )...like apples, potatoes are genetically diverse...the seed for the vines in the basement came from an early blue but the tubers that came from the vines were not blue in the least...tinged with red as a matter of fact...so, if things go well, we'll see what comes of the second generation...i harvested my first spud of the season six days ago and today i planted th elast of the seed stock i had in the basement...these two german butterballs should be finishing up in october which means my cyclical planting may give me a spud harvest over the course of five months...we'll see about that too.
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.
