Corn Report Time…

And, no, I’m not talking about the kind on toes.  Thankfully, I hear you saying.  I’ve posted what seems like a bunch of posts on broke ribs and busted up knees and I’m tired of posting about mangled old body parts.

With that being clarified… I do have one quick thing to tell you before we go on to another stellar corn post…Tipper, over at Blind Pig And The Acorn, posted about every one who participated in the good corn day/ bad corn day test.  She also writes about cooking, canning, freezing and enjoying the things she grows. She also will share with you Pap and Paul’s music.  Good ole’ picking and singing and traditional Appalachian music.  Tipper is working real hard at keeping the old traditions alive and she is a really good read, too. 

Onward and upward…

corn report 8.16.09 009 Good day corn is on the right.  I left the sprinkler in there for a size reference.

corn report - more 003 Good day corn..corn report - more 004 50 inches plus 3 inches for the tape case = 53 inches.

corn report - more 006 Same song, second verse with the bad day corn…

corn report - more 007 25 inches plus 3 inches for the case = 28 inches.  A bit more than half the size for the good day corn.

corn 1 Tasseling on the good day corn.

corn report 8.16.09 012 And some more.  Five of the six good day corn plants are tasseling out.

bad day corn The one bad day corn, while much shorter is looking like the good day corn looked last Sunday.

corn report 8.16.09 015 The other two bad day corn plants.  I don’t know if they are going to make at all.

So all you folks out there in the blogsphere… this is the end of the corn report for this week.  I’ll have a green bean, blackeyed peas and tomato report coming up this week.  And maybe a yarn or two, a flower report, a dog report but no body part reports.

I hope.

I think I found Tipper through you. What a treasure she is! The good day/bad day experiment has been really fun to follow. I will be curious how it all ends.

Loved those flowers in your previous post!

Love Tipper, her family and her website. She brings back a lot of memories.
I hope you don't have anymore "accidents", so that you don't have to report on body parts, too.
Looks like you may get an ear or two of corn from this experiment.

With this need to REPORT, I sense a "how much coffee do I need each morning to keep checking on all these experiments of mine" report coming on.LOL~!
I sure hope the corn doesn't die on you, because I would hate to see you trip on a dry corn cob and hurt yourself again.
Slow down and take it easy.
Watch out for CORN snakes....

Laura Carol cooked up a mess of blackeyed peas Sunday. They are sooo good. I told her I would probably have the blackeyed pea 'trots' before they were all gone. I even heated up a bowl for a bed time snack. Mmmmm

Caution I am sure hoping to get at least an ear or two to taste it. Tipper says it's a white, sweet corn. I've got a post I'm working on about my favorite indoor plant that I hope to finish up with photos this week.

Becky I know what you mean about bringing back memories. My daddy's side of the family was in Tennessee and we got back there at least once a year for family reunions. I loved being there. It was beautiful.

Farmlady, believe it or not, I don't drink coffee. That's another story, of course, but I do love my iced tea and/or Diet Pepsi for my caffeine fix all day.

Oh! Looking forward to the bean, black eyed peas and tomato report! Thanks for the 'Tipper' link. I love her blog.

Now you know, Helen, I was a thankin' bout them bruises you been showin' off. I've come to the conclusion that you are a wrestler and you been hidin' that talent from us.

Who else would be so brave to get up and keep on a'goin' after all you been through?

Love you, Darlon,
