That looks so healthy, Suzy! I have never tried growing corn, but I really admire your effort to establish a corn sales stand in front of your home. I can already envision this fall.

hehehehehehehehehe Maybe if I sell enough I can buy a greenhouse!!!! By the way...I like my new body. The corn diet must agree with me!!

You must try corn Charles. Very easy. stick your finger in the dirt to make a hole..plop in the kernel..wait forever and tadaaa..corn. I have heard the trick is to plant the rows very close so they can do their pollination thing.

Just teasing. Glad you liked it. I think that you are a sweetie and your DH is a lucky fellow.

Corn looks great! I just had some from our local farmer's market this week and it was delicious. I've tried to grow it in my small garden, but found I got too little corn for the space, so I just buy it locally. Yours looks great! Where I grew up in SW Michigan a popular summer job for kids was detassling corn for the local feed corn growers. What a hot sticky job in the middle of summer!

I think we have another episode of "Dirty Jobs"! I love that show.

For my small family of two we got enough last year to satisfy our fresh corn fix. If I had to feed much more than that, it would hardly be worth the space or effort. It is fun to see it grow though.

(But I will remind him of that when the occasion arises!) Currently, since we are technically Newlyweds (at least for another month), he doesn't need reminding that often. I'm still a novelty. Come to think of it I am just goofy enough that hopefully I always will be
