Another busy day in the garden

Sunflowers starting to show signs of actual flowers.

The very first baby pole beans make an appearance.

Not sure if you can see it, but the ears of corn are starting to come together along the stalks. Much earlier than I anticipated.


What growing on now?

Corn is staring to do it’s thing. Look like we might get two ears per stalk.

Tomatoes are making appearances even if they are hard to get in focus…

The sunflowers and the corn are taller than my daughter and about a day away form being taller than my son.

My “berm” crops

Overall I’m pretty pleased with the crops in my new beds on the berm. I’ve had to fight animals and people. But, what started as an almost throw away project because I didn’t want to grow grass there, has become something I’m excited about. Some of the corn didn’t make it. And I’m not sure if the replacments will have time to grow. The middle bed of sunflowers may have been a favorite place of the local pests… either the squirrels, dogs, or junior high kids. I replanted twice. They’re growing now. But maybe too late. Oh no. Now I’m invested in this throw away project…
