I think it is a conspiracy. I want to do a corn report and I’m already late… Now I’m having “internet communication” problems. Windows cannot communicate with primary DNS server (220.127.116.11). Bullshit… Windows Vista can’t communicate with anyone or anything, I’m thinking. I’m going to write this s.o.p. (silly old post) anyhow. Because it’s coming down to the end of the season and my corn is about ready to pick. I think…
Bad day corn… Little ear but there is an ear. If this stalk hadn’t been knocked over it would be up about my waist. And there is an ear and the stalk is still growing. The other two bad day corn bit the dust.
This is the biggest of the good day corn and the first to produce an ear. I think that the ear is about ready to pick. The ears aren’t very big, but I attribute that to being put into the ground about a month late for our area. Next year I’m going to plant corn again because it has been so interesting to me, and hopefully, to all of you on this experiment about planting with the signs.
This is that poor little bad day corn that is still growing that got knocked over by the wind and yet hung in there and is producing an ear despite it’s travails. I was in the mood for a bigger word, one of those fun words to say and sad in the things it describes… travails. Try saying it a bit slower and rolling the rrrrrr… sounds kind of Shakespearian… But I digress, sort of. This is, after all is said and done, a ‘c.o.r.n’. report.
How about a couple of non-corn shots…
Okra! I got the okra plants in late and I wasn’t sure I was going to get any home grown okra this year… And I still may not, but at least I got the photo of one okra pod and I will use this picture to remind me to get it planted earlier next year. But at least I can I show you all one photo. Now I’ll try to get pictures of the flower because they are really beautiful… I guess I could post pictures from last year, but that wouldn’t be keeping it real.
And you all deserve everyone keeping it real.
