So the corn got REALLY TALL! The corn in the fields is so deceiving! I never knew it was 6 feet tall!! These rows were actually planted a week apart to "stagger the harvest".
This one has three ears growing!
This is some "salad bowl" lettuce
And this is "Green Leaf" lettuce. We can all see the difference right??
Lots of Yellow Lillies
These are the bush beans I planted. I only did two "squares" of them, which means a 1'x1' space. We have quite a harvest from only these 18 plants! I will definitely plant these again.
Kavan and I picked the first round of the beans just last night. He loves to help in the kitchen.
Here's Maddie holding the first beany bounty in a gallon ziploc. Can't you see how excited she is to get to eat those later?!
Well, that's it for this Splitty Yard update. I do hope that I am feeling better soon, because I would like to try a fall garden. A lot of people prefer it because of the more comfortable temps and the lower amount of weeds! Both sound good to me!
P.S. Edited to add: I would be remiss not to mention that Kelly has been working super hard to get our huge pile of branches and such taken care of from the very back of the yard. He has reached his goal and the whole pile has been burned! Thanks for your help Tony! Kelly also took on the herculean task of mowing the entire yard with the push mower this weekend, since our rider has a broken part which is apparently difficult to find. Let's just have a moment of silence for the hours spent toiling behind that lovely push mower in the balmy sun all over 3/4 of an acre, shall we? Thanks, I think Kelly would appreciate it. We raise our tall, icy cold glasses of lemonade to you hon! LOVE YOU!!
