In the final part of my gardening series, a.k.a. "Starving Off The Land," I present to you:Our corn crop.Yeah, that little nub there? In my son's hand?THAT'S IT."There's one kernel for each of you, kids."Living off the land, my foot.And my ears too.
what you're telling me is, growing corn in Portland is NOTHING like growing corn in Ohio.
I really enjoy your blog - I've left an award for you on our blog at http://adopttaiwan.wordpress.comHave a great day!Cindy
Ohio sweet corn is the greatest!! Just wish we could share it with the northwesterners somehow - I did mail them some green beans, though. Don't think corn would be very good that way. Never say never, though, as I might chance it next August. A nubbins is a good start - maybe next year, you will have a bigger crop.
I live in Indiana--we get made fun of for being a corn state.But I ended up with only a few ears. Those stalks are so huge and take up so much space for such a tiny yield, I'm not sure it's worth it.I will say, however, that the flavor of those few ears was amazing. Ours were normal sized--we just didn't get many of them.So given what "your mom" said, maybe we just need ten Midwestern acres to get a better crop, and then we can build long-distance community (is that an oxymoron?) by sharing (I'll ship some of my ten acres of corn to you, if you freeze and ship some of your smoothies, perhaps?)?
