Yesterday about five percent of the little corn shoots were in the sunshine. I was watering and started to see suspicious little protrusions. It was only after I identified places where there were three or four in a row with the right spacing that I called Jim in Buffalo to celebrate with him over the phone. It is jumping out!
It started showering today and will be through the weekend so I will get relief from the watering chore. Just raking between the corn rows to cultivate and hamper the pesky weed sprouts. Water is a concern and weeds too, feeding deer comes next. But all the corn should be up for Pilgrim Farmer John’s visit this Sunday. He has come all these miles to see us and bless the field. I’m sooo happy.
And this all is mighty big news in my world. Have to get up and go for right now. It has showered lightly outside but still may be dry enough to mow some. OK, tomorrow, love, Felipé.
