spuds and ears

this bucket of died back spuds yielded a handful of fingerling potatoes of the elmer's blue also yielded lunch along with some butter and a bit of garlic from earlier in the season...lunch from the yard...
despite the weather related damage inflicted on the northern tepehuan teosinte there are multiple ears still on intact stalks and there is no frost in the forecast for the next ten days...things may be alright yet...
and these are structures the zea mays parvagluumis i grew last season never got close to producing...they produced seed but it was immature and the ears were still interior to the stalks...these are new to me and, if this weather holds, may provide some education...we'll see.
