tendrils, seeds, and rain
temperatures below freezing at night have not phased the winter vetch...it is busy setting nitrogen in a future potato patch and it is all putting out tendrils to pull itself up to more sunlight...some have found an anchor point...it's seed time and i am about done harvesting teosinte seed...i have culled a couple of hundred from ears on the plants and i have left nearly as meany to fall naturally to see if we find any in spring...either way there will be zea family grasses out there in spring ( but not zea mays )...it has turned wet here of late...1.7" of rain since friday...the new rain gauge has had a workout...more on tap late tomorrow and into tuesday...a rain-soaked start to december.
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.
