Yaye! You guys will soon have fresh corn on a cob. Yummy! Ours are still not planted. Just doesn't seem to get the right time to plant them. Oh well, it's still not too late. You can also save the corn kernels mommy Dhemz and let them dry out and keep them in a dry place so you can have seeds for the next year. That's what we do so we don't have to buy seeds every year. I love fresh corn! :)

Hello Dhemz,

I love corn too. In fact when went to armstrong yesterday I grab 6 small containers of already grown corn but my husband told me to put it back because we don't have space in our garden. Yea his is right, I was not thinking at all that we have a very small garden.

Wishing that your corn will grow healthy. Take care.
