We had a frost night before last. Maybe this weekend some corn and veggies will go in.

This has been a pretty good year for gardens so far here. We're starting to get a few spotted gardens with corn ready to eat. I'm eating snap beans already. Most gardens has tomatoes big enough to fry. A few cucumbers here and there. Mine is about 1 inch long now so it won't be long. Squash has been in for a long time. Going to my neighbors this evening and pick a mess of peas. Yep, its been a good year so far.

Incredible differences in this great country of ours! Here in New England, the lawn is just about to be mowed the first time, and unless you're a gambler, you won't plant a tomato for another week or two. This last weekend was great for turning up the garden. We'll do it again just before the seeds go in.

Here in Burgettstown, about 1:45hrs south east of Akron, we have corn up, too. The problem is, we have been pretty dry the past 2 weeks, which is good to get the rest of the corn in, and to get our weekly planting of sweet corn. We are gonna need some rain soon, even if it's once a week, it will be better than what we have been getting. The other problem is, we got frosted last night. That is nt good!


Hopefully things will balance out. Last year was a great year for corn, if we could get a repeat, I would be so happy.

I am really looking forward to the first taste of that "silver queen" sweet corn we have in the ground. That has to be some of the best sweet corn ever.


Good thing we didn't do any soybeans this year. The late frost would have really messed with the yield, if not crippling it completely.


Wishing the best of the 2007 harvest!

Isn't it great when it finally starts to happen? My first planting is doing well in spite of the lack of rain. The leaves reach shoulder height when unfurled. The tassels will come out tomorrow.

Image

The second planting was doing well too, except the stalks were about 8' apart! It was ripped up and replanted last Friday. The nearest row of the first planting was skimpy so there is some okra sharing the row. Now all we need is a little rain.
