peppers, spears, and rye
took a trip out to the community garden after work to water and have a look around...at first glance things looked okay but it has been warm today and a closer look at the jerusalem artichokes showed they needed to be watered thoroughly...so i did...along with everything else...it may be early june but things are moving along..the winter rye is beginning to ripen in earnest and the bear paw maize is putting out new leaves...the orange lunchbox pepper has some...peppers...one well along and another nascent one...the asparagus is healthy and i fond new spears up since saturday...sturdy growth to feed the roots...there are twenty-six spears up now and likely more to come...the plants are happy in this garden...and that is the garde's planted beds in the bottom photo...i have seeds coming and parker! has told me we can meet in the garden sunday and plant seed she has...there will be more to water and to photograph soon enough.
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.
