Also, I won't be posting nearly as many posts this year. I've been accepted to graduate school where I'll be studying plant breeding (really excited!!!) and will be moving across the state in a little over a week. In my absence, my sister will be taking care of growing out my oca, mashua, and other crop species while I'm gone, and perhaps I can grow a couple of them in some pots in my new apartment. There may be a couple posts from when I visit home, but there likely won't be as many.
Also, I've gone through my photos and realized I had quite a few more of mashua and oca on my other computer, so here they are! :
|Flowering mashua vining up apple tree|
|Young mashua plant in our dark volcanic ash glacial soil (Spanaway series, Andisol)|
|Mashua and oca around the apple tree, with trellis.|
|Young oca plant - I believe this is the lavender variety of oca that I got from the Occidental Arts & Ecology Center|
