the usual suspects
even so there's almost always something new to see each trip...such as much larger cucumbers ready to harvest...they are hiding in the vines but they are there...i found five new asparagus spears on two plants which must be feeding very large root systems by now...these plants will be around for years to come...the bear paw maize is beginning to flower ( fourth and fifth photos ) and should be producing an ear or two soon enough...the roma tomatoes are still there but much riper than my last trip out...and finally the last photo is of some robust peppers on the plants...there's produce out there and more to come...the beans are beginning to sprout and the jerusalem artichokes are blooming..a sure sign tubers are in the offing..the season rolls along.
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.
