Corn Crazy Man
The vegetable garden is out of control this year. Art wanted to grow corn which is not easy to do. I tried to persuade him to plant something else and I'm glad he didn't listen. Corn needs really nutrient rich soil and all my past experiences with it have failed. I guess having chickens to fertilize our soil has changed everything.
Art calls me out to admires his corn babies daily. It's crazy how fast it grows.
We've got tomatillos, peppers, squash, tomatoes, pumpkins, beans, nectarines, strawberries, plums, leeks, herbs, and of course sweet peas and giant sunflowers.
It's official....we are frustrated farmers in suburbia.
