If y'all will remember I am helping Tipper at Blind Pig and the Acorn with her corn experiment. Something dug up most of her corn, so for her, the experiment isn't going so well. But, my corn seems to be doing good, so far. It's been planted about a month now. In the picture below the corn on the right was planted on the good day and the corn on the left on the bad day. They were planted 3 days apart. The corn on the right is taller, but so far that is the only difference.
Not all of the corn came up, but there are about 8 good and 8 bad that did come up. So, as long as the nothing messes it up, hopefully my corn will keep growing and I'll have some corn to eat! Ignore all the grass you see in the pictures. We didn't have our own tiller and had been borrowing my cousins to do the garden. They had been busy with the tiller so we haven't been able to use it in a long time. But, recently we got our own used one we found on craigslist. This is it in the picture below. Since everything else in the garden is dead, my husband can now plow it up. So, it should look better soon!
