eleven days, two takers
eleven days ago i soaked eleven tesointe seeds ( for all you numerology believers ) and as of this evening there are two that have germinated...this variety is new to me and i am not sure if an eighteen percent germination rate is the norm...however i do know that this is not nearly enough plants to have a season with...so over the upcoming long weekend ( which promises to be crowded with gardening preparations ) there will be another soak and bagging...the two that have germinated are doing well and it looks as if the one in the last photo will be finding its way to a peat pot soon enough...and outside in a few weeks...once the threat of frost is past...teosinte may need a cycle pof cold to break dormancy naturally but it doesn't like cold weather...neither do its descendants.
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.
