I have a terrible time with corn. Last year, the squirrels ate the little mini-ears I was growing…right before I was going to harvest them.
This year it was wind.
Yup, my gorgeous corn stalks looked like this in the morning.
At least a few of the ears were far enough along to harvest, although it would have been better if they’d been able to stay on there a couple more weeks.
This is Glass Corn, the prettiest corn in the world. Every ear is a different color.
It’s a not a fresh eating corn; it’s meant for flour, or popcorn. I’m going to go with popcorn.
And look! Here’s a random cabbage!
I love colorful vegetables. They are so gorgeous in the garden.
Yesterday, one of my chickens got lost. I went out to shut them in the coop for the night, and Josie, my Barnvelder was just…gone. I looked in the coop, and in all the various yards they currently have access to. I called her. I asked the other chickens where she was. No one knew.
And then I found her. And made a video, because if you can’t use the internet to shame your chickens into proper behavior, what else can you do????
And then, after I filmed her, I took her out of the bucket and discovered what she’d been up to.
These are all her eggs. And here I thought she was not laying because she was heading into a molt! I still can’t figure out how she was getting in and out of that bucket.
Crazy chicken. It’s not as if she doesn’t have perfectly wonderful nest boxes…complete with pink curtains!
