Randall, how does your neighbor's commercial corn fair? I assume commercial corn is not flattened or people couldn't afford to raise it. Perhaps the large amount means the stalks protect each other from the wind.
It's been 50 years since I learned (and have since forgotten) how to graft in a college botany class. I may have to review the techniques.
Happy to pick up 0.6" of rain last night. Not so happy the storm flattened my sweet corn. It happens every year! Grrr. At least I haven't seen any raccoons (thanks, Molly dog!).
Daniel, thanks for reminding me of Cycle of Life page!
Those grafts look very healthy. I am eager to learn how the fruit progresses.
Hurrah, Joan! My farmer daughter's name is Emily Grace, named after my grandmother. All four of my kids included family names. I think it's a neat tradition. To some extent, they have followed suit.
Something to do with breast feeding, perhaps? I knew a woman who was appalled at the diaper stench of her baby after she stopped breast feeding.
Congrats Joan! Best wishes!
Brooklyn Grace Staab was born yesterday about noon, 9 pounds, 9 ounces. Mother and baby doing well. May come home today.
Here's what's coming out of my garden onto my plate: sweet corn, grean beans, peas, kale, collards, chard, lettuce (getting bitter and going to seed), cucumbers, summer squash, carrots, onions, new potatoes, and all kinds of herbs, like dill and cilantro and chives. It's really overwhelming. Oh yes, brocolli and cabbage, too!
Any news of your granddaughter, Joan?
