planting and a new soak II
the two teosinte seedlings i planted three days ago are greening up and they have the telltale purple stems that say
teosinte" ( not that other grasses don't have purple stems...but i will accept it as a teosinte confirmation )...the second photo has some blurry green going on but it does do a fair job of illustrating a root emerging from the top of the seed case and loking for the soil...that will need to be covered...the seeds i soaked three days ago show no movement but, after i had given up on them, the original set has produced a third germination...so perhaps this seed just takes longer than the varieties i had been working with previously...i will leave the first batch be to see what transpires..i may find myself with more seedlings than room.
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.
