I am planning on planting the corn 🌽 on Thursday. Jim will be here from Buffalo to help. So, God willing, Thursday it is. The weather is supposed to be fantastic and I am close on having the soil ready, just have to level it and layout the rows and set up the irrigation. It will be good to have that helping hand for the actual planting.
So, this morning I set the corn seed to soaking in warm water. I’m saying, “Wake up you little guys, it’s time!” Have the three varieties in the three coffee cans with the water, as you can see in the pic today. The early is Sugar Buns which has a smallish ear which matures quickly so it there when you are craving. The middle is Bodacious which takes longer and is cornier tasting with a bigger ear. It is a favorite. Then the late is Golden Jubilee which has the biggest ear and takes the longest. It won’t happen in a cold summer here at this latitude but it should this year. All of that just means that we will have fresh corn for a month or maybe five weeks at best. It is called succession planting when you have different varieties that come in waves and don’t interfere with each other.
So, John Conway, Pilgrim Farmer John, will be here from Iowa later this month to put his blessing on all this. And the real point of this is to help feed the pilgrims who will be here in August. Yum!
Walking in a few moments here. What a beautiful morning too. See you tomorrow. Corny loves, Felipé.
