grasses, stolons, and a nightshade blooms
the teosinte...northern tepehuan ( first ) and zea mays parvaglumis ( second ) are about three feet tall today and moving along nicely towards ( hopefully ) ears...the winter rye ( third ) and emmer wheat ( fourth ) are very nearly ready to harvest...a dry weekend will see them come in...the imported wild strawberry is replete with stolons and new growth ( fifth through seventh ) we may not see blooms and berries but we will have daughters...finally the last four photos are blooms on the blue shetland potatoes i got from the usda this past spring...potato blooms have been a disappointment this year...it had been warm and dry in june...not the best weather to stimulate blooms...however the blue varieties have always been prolific bloomer and the majority of potato fruits i have harvested have come from them ( mainly early blue ) so there is hope for late fruits..if they appear in the yard they will surely appear here.
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.
