July Harvesting in the Victory Garden (new pics 7-28-13) - Page 3

I am sooooo excited!  I have never grown corn before.  The Stalks are soooooo tall.  Here in this pic you can see how much taller they are than our 6 foot fence. Please don't look at the weeds. But they are growing nicely too...thank you very much. icon_redface.gif

AND...I have my first 2 baby ears of corn!  Woot Woot!

Aren't they cute!!!! 

 

Thanks for looking!

Congratulations. Fresh corn is the best! A fantasy around here, but the best.

Is that the pencil corn? If so you said it was heritage right?

This is a Mennonite Corn and the "seeds" were from a Community up in Tennessee.  Supposedly the cobs are very small and red...and the kernals are white...and sweet to taste.  We will see in a few weeks.  If these are as good as Lynn said...I will keep a cob and let it dry for seeds this next year.

 

Love Shoe-peg corn too.  Makes that great shoe-peg corn salad.
