It is time for your weekly corn update! (I am fully aware that this is probably not nearly as interesting as the suspiciously absent shoe porn feature, but I love my garden so much.)
The corn is having quite a growth spurt lately – even the crazy storm last Thursday couldn’t keep it down for long!
Carrie Corn (still the biggest in the garden) is about 2 feet at her tallest point (an 8-inch growth spurt in the last week). James Corn, who was a measly 7″ last week is now pushing 12″ – and was one of the few corns not knocked over by the storm – his smallness protected him, I believe.
They are getting to that point in their lives where they no longer listen to anything I say, and I think a few of them tried to sneak out of the garden last night – perhaps to meet up with some of the corns down the street.
The rest of the garden is growing like crazy. I think my potatoes are growing a few inches/day, too, and if you look real close, you can see tiny baby broccolis.
I also have baby pumpkins, butternut squashes & yellow squashes. The bamboo is settling (kind of) into its new home, and I just hope it doesn’t get too crappy looking before recovering.
The architect & I are going camping this weekend, so the garden will be on its own for a few days. I hope those crazy corns don’t get into too much trouble!
