spuds and ears
this bucket of died back spuds yielded a handful of fingerling potatoes of the elmer's blue variety..it 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.
an ex- industrial worker ( the continued automation of jobs, condensing of ownership, plant closings, trade wars, and degradation of living standards here has rendered me a former industrial worker...now just part-time lumpen proletariat) 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.
