frost false alarm
the "unofficial" community garden season is moving along despite a bogus frost advisory for last night ( it was thirty-nine degrees when i got up this morning but the potatoes and jerusalem artichokes scoff at that...still there is quite a bit of industrial corn stalled in the fields that have already been planted...we will be planting maize tuesday and , hopefully, the weather will warm ot it will stall as well )...in fact the jerusalem artichokes are about half way to my one foot tall e=by the end of the month prediction...the ollala potatoes ( second photo )are jsut booming along as is the single german butterball pictured ( third photo )...last is yet another shot of mashua...something a bit exotic for northwest indiana...a link to the andean vavilov center...we will see how it produces.
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.
