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.


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…
