I'm just back from holidays - I've been out of town and offline for several weeks - and am excited to see corn doing so well in my garden!
I planted it this spring on a whim - I usually like to try growing at least one new and different thing each year, and I've never grown corn before. It was more for the novelty and for the kids - I planted an ornamental variety and a baby corn variety - and didn't really expect to get anything as corn needs such a long, hot growing season and doesn't typically do well in Calgary unless you have a hot micro-climate. But with the hot summer we've had mine is doing quite well and I might even get a small harvest! That's what I love about vegetable gardening - it pays to diversify and every year there are surprises.
So if you've sent me a message in the last few weeks, my apologies for not responding yet and I'll get caught up in the next couple of days. I don't put a vacation message on my email as it just doesn't seem like a good idea what with pictures of my house on the website, etc.
How is your garden doing?
