I love what I do. But this flabby old body is just not going to enlarge its horizons much.

One of the things that has entertained me for the past couple years is to encourage folks to both grow their own and grow their own seed to that end. Robin Marble's N4S has been the vehicle for me.

One food crop that does not ship affordably are potato. BUT TPS (true potato seed) does ship well.

A breeder and grower has offered (and done a first installment) on how to grow potato from TPS and is supposed to also do breeding tutorials.

So if you want a gentle diversion for a winters read, stop by at:

Me, too, thank you.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
