Coming along nicely


The daises I transplanted throughout the front garden are all putting on one solitary, fat bud. The white will offer cool spots for the eye to rest as it wanders around the yard.

Dahlias are persistent little buggers. This mangled mass is what I recently discovered pushing up through the newest garden bed we'd placed in the side yard. It's lifting the garlic and I fear it will crowd out the tomatoes if allowed to continue.

The corn seems to be enjoying its toasty warm spot against the south facing side of the house. The hope is heat reflecting off the building will give these sun lovers a bit more oomph to fully develop sweet juicy ears that my little guy insists are "nananas."

Love your little corn plants! I tried corn for the first time this year, and my son and I shared the first ear the other day. It was so delicious. Heat has really hit AZ though now, and the rest of the ears are pretty small. Not sure they will be much good but it was sure fun trying it.

Hi Melanthia! I agree, the whites are very welcome among pink, purple, red intense colors. I am curious how your corn will grow. I tried just once and those several plants were so puny that I never planted it again. Have a great weekend!It should be cooler (less watering!)

I wish we had the room and sun to grow corn. I would love to it. Good luck with yours! -Jackie

Hope your baby corns will grow and produce juicy ears... or "nananas"... I just finished mine and the spot made ready for "sawi putih taiwan"

Our climates must be just so similar, my corn is about at the same stage as yours.
