The corn is looking like actual corn. The silks appeared first, soon after the tassels. It seems to almost double every day. I stare at it a lot, being a first time corn grower and all.
On a different note, the lemon cucumbers are taking over the yard. They have taken over their end of the garden and have creeped over and out of the raised bed. They struggle during the heat of the day, almost collapsing in a dramatic manner, then perk up as it cools off. I’m hoping for enough cucumbers to pickle using Ruhlman’s recipe.
