Well, today we too in our first harvest of corn. It’s fairly meager, maybe 15 ears total, and most of them smaller. We got a few in that were just about perfect. It’s not even close enough to feed us for any length of time, but it’s a small triumph, a proof of concept if nothing else. It doesn’t hurt that this was our second attempt at the corn. The first failed miserably. We planted in cups, and when we transplanted, the seedlings just didnt make it. Maybe we waited to late to transplant, but personally, I think corn is ideal for simply planting in the ground.

Oh, my! If only I had teeth!

The ear in the pic above is the first one I picked, and it was pretty nice looking. The pic doesn’t really do it justice. It will be eaten with gusto tonight.
