July 28 2017 – In My Garden – Holy Corn

July 28 2017 Holy cow corn! What a difference a week and fish make for the corn. I came home from New York to broom and sweet corns that are growing against the poly in the high tunnel. They’re loving the white perch offal from a fishing trip a few weeks ago the extra warmth in the high tunnel. Here’s what’s in my garden on July 28 2017. The sweet corn is tasseling.

June 16 2017 It’s quiet in the vegetable garden this week, June 16 2017. Chickens are jerks sometimes. They found their way into the tunnel and feasted on the Ministro cucumber seedlings.
