part beans, part other stuff
the poke weed in the berm of the bean field beside the supermarket is coming along nicely ( the ones in my yard as well )..you can make a vegetable dye from the berries and the leaves are edible ( poke salad ) even if it is considered
famine food " by many and plebeian by almost all...still it has a place in this blog as i work to redefine "weed" for myself if no one else...there's quite a few plants other than beans down the rows as well..in fact it is sometimes difficult to discern the rows at all...they are there...so is at least one maple sapling ( fifth photo ) and something that resembles silphium but needs better identification before i call it that..and i did find beans...with tiny blooms ( seventh photo ) and pods beginning to sprout off the stems..so there will be a bean harvest of sorts...one wonders how the machinery will react to all the guests..it would be interesting to watch...i doubt the timing will pander to my schedule however.
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.
