This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

popcorn sprouts

corn 036

My popcorn is a couple inches tall now. I thinned it once to about 2-3 inches apart and will thin again to about 6 inches soon. There is a giant sunflower that volunteered at the far end of the bed. It should be able to outgrow the corn.

I am planning to order some parasitic warps this year to see it I can get ears without worms. I need to order these soon.

Think they'll be knee-high by fourth of July?

Good Looking growth. I planted some sweetcorn 2 weeks ago, they look good. I had a second batch, later harvest tht I planted last Sunday. My goodness our weather is rubbish, so much wind they were practically bending over as I planted them (I am sure Soilman would have detailed this far more eloquently!!!) I have watered and prayed, fingers and everything else crossed thye survive. Our weather is MAD!!
