ripening, recovery, and blooms
the sunflowers in the yard are blooming along these days...and so is the "primitive cultivar" huaycu over int the spud section ( third photo ) it is not an "improved" variety and, if it is like any of the other primitive cultivars i have grown ( yema de huevos come to mind ) it isn't "improved" because the tubers don't have a dormant period but rather begin to sprout as soon as they reach maturity...a sort of indeterminate season...the heirloom tomatoes are ripening...or, at least, they aren't green anymore...the yacon continues to recover from early season hail damage ( fifth photo )...and, finally, winter vetch is a nitrogen setting legume used as a green manure...in my yard and in the community garden soon enough...how do i know? pods are forming on the plants in my yard...local seed.
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.
