Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Wordless Wednesday

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Oh, fun! For several months, I had a sprouting garlic bulb on my windowsill, and I kept it there far longer than I should have just because I like the way it looked. 😉

    • When I was a kid we used to put a sweet potato (maybe white potatoes too, can’t remember) into a glass and watch it grow roots and then spout vines of leaves. I remember them being on the kitchen windowsill for a long time. I bought this one to make a pie, and then didn’t and it took off on it’s own without water. I think once it stops being SO COLD outside I’ll put it in the ground and let it do what it wants to do, just for fun.

  2. I used to try growing carrots and avocados this way, though I can’t claim much success. Still, it was fun watching the changes!

  4. Plant it and grow your own potatoes…rumor has it there will be a shortage of them this year! PS – that’s a really cool photo, nice job.

  5. Wow, how cool! Who would have thought? Ok, I’m going to let some root things sprout and plant them and see what happens. Can we grow yams or sweet potatoes at this latitude? The photo is super cool. 🙂

    • I bet you CAN grow sweet potatoes and other similar stuff at our latitude. The thumb of Michigan grows acres and acres of sugar beets, which are a lot like sweet potatoes, or seem to look like them when they’re harvested. I know gardeners here that grow white potatoes in their gardens, so yes I think you could.
