zea...carnage and growth
critters have been at the maize...squirrels would seem to be the culprits given the toppled stalks and the damage close to the ground...saving it is impossible...and this is what i had expected when i planted it...the remaining ears will be gone soon enough...lost to squirrels or raccoons with insects cleaning up...there will be decorative stalks for the deck though...from halloween to thanksgiving...the teosinte ( zea mays parvaglumis ) on the other hand has grown to about ten feet at its tallest with multiple tillers on multiple plants making for more of a thicket than a row...still wondering what this will produce...next month perhaps signs will begin to show.
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.
