Yesterday was a hot and humid day. I think it was near 80 but it felt so much hotter. Especially when the clouds let the sun through. I felt like I was baking!
I re-tilled an area that was a new section of garden, connecting two gardens together. It was a pain to mow and not get grass in either the strawberries or the garden itself so I just tilled it up. It is now home to the corn!
So corn went in yesterday, 3 rows. In another few weeks I'll get another 3 rows planted. If there is seed left over, I plan on doing a row or two in the upper garden. Hopefully we will get a good crop this year.
The past few years, we planted silver queen corn. It was a disaster! Hardly any yield to speak of and then the stink bugs got them. This year I chose a bi-color variety, Luscious. And I'm going to attack those darn bugs with a soapy water bath when they come around!
Things are getting there, but slowly! I am planning to get the seeds I have started into the ground this week. I must be done!
Next time.....my new deer repellant system......cheaper and I hope it works!
