Sunday Night Back From a Small Trip Garden Thread

When I started the garden, a few commenters told me not to bother with corn because it wouldn’t grow in a small garden.

Mmmm. Delicious impossible corn.

    Corn is hard work but certainly worth the trouble and not impossible. I bet that corn was the best you ever had.

  3. Nice picture. This way you can have your fresh produce and eat it, too!

  4. lucy,

    I planted one tomato plant in a large pot this year, and threw the other 3 from the pack in a window box. I figured there was no sense throwing them away, and I really like the smell of tomato plants, so my plan was to water them until the died for lack of soil.
    I got a, albeit very very tiny, red tomato from the window box yesterday afternoon.

    Good job on the corn. I didn’t know they grew that quickly.

  7. Rich,

    I’ve grown as little as a 4 x 5 block of corn in previous years and had great success with it.

    And fresh corn is extremely good if picked before it gets over ripe.

    This year, however, my corn didn’t germinate… 8-(

    But I’ve already had enough cukes and courgettes (zucchini) to make a batch of pickles, and we’ve had our first meal of climbing french beans.
