Sweet Summer Corn Steps from our Door

Yesterday, I harvested our corn.  We sprouted it in March…so it took a while to mature.  We live in climate zone 10-with micro-climates on our small space.  Raccoons visit us almost nightly.  A few weeks ago, my husband awoke to the sound of foraging…and in the full moon light watched our corn patch dance as our visitors dug for delicious red worms.  Our corn was spared-perhaps a bit tilted by harvest.  I prepared the soil with chicken manure and wood chips when transplanting the corn sprouts.  I kept the soil wet.  We had no insect infestation and are looking forward to dinner tonight with our locally grown harvest.judo private 041
