Gongsun Sheng Joins His Brother

Wu Song’s partner, Gongsun Sheng, is emerging. I put him in a pot with real dirt, and I hope he likes it as much as Wu Song has liked his. Gongsun Sheng is named for another character in The Water Margin. He is a Taoist priest and magician who can summon the wind and rain, ride the mist, and drive the clouds. I’ll be satisfied if he’s a happy Scarlet Emperor Bean. 

I recently bought pots made of cow manure. Wu Song is in a plain old peat pot, but Gongsun Sheng has a cow paddy.

Everything is growing happily. Tomatoes and basil spent the day outside and seem to have liked it fine.
