A facebook friend asked me to print some pictures of my garden, so I will oblige. This is a picture of my corn that I took from the road. In the background is my barn, where I have my workshop and the upper part serves as storage and believe me my daughters have stored their stuff in there for years. I might have to charge storage fees to supplement old-age funds, but we all know that won't happen. I had a weather vane on top of the barn but the big birds attacked it and destroyed it. I may replace it in time!
Also in the background is my daughters trailer and my Purple-Martin birdhouses. My corn did come up spotty but what did come up looks fairly decent in my opinion. I suppose I could say "in retrospect, I should have been a poet or a farmer." This is the best corn I've had in years. We are having a heat spell, but corn does well in this kind of weather. When the rest of us are crying around for water and air-conditioning, corn goes on and on. My cucumbers, tomatoes, and tators have done well also. I have no complaints and I'm satisfied with whatever I get out of my humble garden. We've lived in our house for 34 years and part of my contract with my wife is that I take care of the yard. In fact, here is a picture with a view of my yard and garden in the distance. I enjoy planting, growing and seeing if I can improve my yard every year. When I get abit older, maybe I can watch my grandchildren do all the work I do now and I can sit under a shade tree and tell lies to some innocent visitor!
