Corn

By SKEETERLook what is growing in a planter by the house here in my Georgia Gardens.
I did not plant this stalk of corn. It is growing well in this spot and I cannot wait to see what happens with the lone ear of corn.I do believe this little stinker planted the CORN, In the Garden...

  4. Good Morning all. It is so dry now that I am watering the shady North side of the house. Gee, times such as this makes a gardener want to give up…

    Rebecca, I love surprises in the garden...

    Tina, This is one of the sprinklers on a timer for the newly planted Mccorkles items. Squirrely was licking the water off the holes. The kids and I got a kick out of watching him...

    Darla, Yes, Squirrels can be good gardeners too. But they prefer to be pests more so...

  5. Good Morning All.
    Pretty flowers but love the corn. Mine only had 1 ear. What gives with that.
    Love the little corn planter. You should put a water source out for it. lol

  7. That little stinker could very well be the one that planted the corn. It is a wonder he has not taken "his" 1 ear of corn. Guess he is too busy trying to find some water for right now. They say you need to have at least 4 rows for corn to pollinate correctly. Guess you (or whoever) proved that wrong. However, maybe that is the reason there is only 1 ear.

  8. That is very impressive! The corn I have planted and tried purposely to grow never had corn like that. Hope that stinker doesn't harvest the corn he planted.

  9. Good evening all. Rain passed us by again. Grrrrrrr....

    Lola, I have water for the critters. They jump into the bird baths all the time. This was just something new to play with and they dont miss a thing in the yard...

    Gardenwalk-talk, Hum, may be. They are cute but at times, I get angry at the little buggars….

    Jean, yes nature does not always go according to the books and records we humans keep. Ha, that squirrel did prove them wrong as there is no corn anywhere near by. Well, the cornels in the bucket for the deer to eat…

    Catherine, I have tried to grow corn with little luck as well. The squirrels plant a seed and it grows. Ha, go figure. I am sure at some point the squirrel or the deer will find this treat. They can have it as long as they leave the rest of the planter alone….

    Everyone have a great evening...

  11. Skeeter,

    I'm with Jean, 4 rows is what I heard. Wonder if it is a self pollinating corn. Either way enjoy!

  12. Actually I happen to think corn is a plant with lots of ornamental potential. I like how it gives your bed a little bit of extra height. Decorative--and edible!

  13. I know he's a little stinker, but he is cute. Maybe you can get him to plant a whole row for you next year:)

  17. Janet, I wish Bushy Tail would plant a big lot of corn for me....

    Randy, I hope this critter plants 4 rows for me next year....

    James, Yes, I do like the way the corn stalk adds interest to this planter...

    Rose, I am thinking the Stinker needs to plant lots of rows for me. He would have better luck then be for sure....

    Dawn, Corn is a yummy treat and I hope to endulge in this one. That is if I can beat the critters to the pluck....
