Yeah, I could buy everything from farmer's markets (and I do buy a lot), but gardening is one of my passions. I just love growing stuff. I have plants all over my house, and spring fills me with joy and anticipation of playing in the dirt. So I don't mind the trouble, and I like to learn new techniques.
Corn requires good full direct sunlight too. I'm not certain about the streetlight impact though. I seem to recall a real hot parking spot in high school where there was a cornfield and a street light.
If I remember right you were probably pretty spiritual in your gardening back then...spent all night plowing and planting and all day the next day praying for crop failure
LOL, had those sewn seeds the prison population of Southern Illinois would have been overcrowded by this point in time. That was some pretty over fertilized soil with a lot of different chemicals during harvest season.
Well I sat with my Granddaughter and we planted 72 little pots in one of those pre-packaged seed things from Burpee...It will be interesting to see if/what develops, from my mix of spices, flowers and ornamental grass...
Funny you guys posted. I *just* finished planting my tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and a few others in the recycled flat I mentioned. The croissant domes fit pretty well and should cover all the seedlings to make a nice greenhouse for several weeks. Sunny day + playing in dirt =
