Corn is Up!

Postby Don McCombs » Sun May 17, 2015 3:44 pm

First planting of sweet corn (Bodacious) is about an inch tall after the rain we had yesterday and last night. Second planting goes in next week.

In the south, we're laying out plans for an ark. It's been three weeks since I could get in the garden. :x

It's been just the opposite up here, Harold, until just a few days ago.

I planted 80 tomato plants today for the neighborhood garden. Most of them will probably go to the Food Bank. They were long and leggy so they had to be buried deep and some had to be laid over in a trench. Some of the holes had more rocks than soil, it seemed, including one the size of a watermelon! Hard work today.

I'm with Harold. The ark doesn't sound too unreasonable right now. I've got a beans and corn popping up in a few of my patches but I've still got a harrow to rescue from a swamp that used to be a good little food plot. Hoping a long weekend will get that done and the rest of the corn down

16.5 inches of rain in Vicksburg yesterday. Yes, you read that right. Flash flooding all around. Not sure how much I got at home, but it was alot. Haven't gotten all my planting done. Guess it'll be awhile longer :-/

WOW! I'd gladly take a few inches off your hands. We went 24 days without a drop. Getting some showers today but another long stretch of dry ahead in the forecast.

Corn in field next to me is up mine was only planted two days ago. I use sh2 which likes a little warmer soil. I normally plant Northern Early and Illini on the same day and make a couple of more plantings of Illini but couldn't find my NE so planted only the Illini. Yesterday Jeanne was sweeping the floor and found the NE under a chair where the ***** cat probably batted it. I had left my box of seed on the floor and I know she was playing in it. Not too late. I'll plant the NE today. And the cat will live to see another day. :D Vern

Not quite. But, we have 37 degrees forecast for Friday night. So, there is still a slight chance of a frost.

It is going to be nip and tuck here in the hollow.

My corn is up too - It's about 6 foot up but no tassels yet.

That's because it's still up on the shelf in my garage :{_}: . Can't plant corn here till Memorial Day and this Saturday we are supposed to have a frost. :o

We'll get there someday.

We're supposed to have frost Saturday morning, also. Looks like we'll be doing a lot of covering. :shock:
