What remains


I harvested my balcony potatoes last weekend and I got some bones to go with them. This was a fancy mouse I buried half a year ago. The potatoes clearly made good use of her body, there was a big root clump that contained all the bones. The coin is a Euro cent, sligthly smaller than a penny.
The big bone on top is the pelvic bone, the one below is the lower jaw, you can still see the molars. The small longish bones are hand and leg bones, the smallest one a finger. Plus some vertebrae. I'm going to try this again in a much smaller pot, I would love to have a complete skeleton.
