Homegrown Popcorn

Hey, look at this really pretty ear of popcorn!!!!

Now, look at it again.

Kinda tiny, eh? And that’s my ONLY ear. I don’t even think I can call it an ear. Ear-ette. But, I am telling you right now…I’m a-gonna dry that bad boy and try to pop it.

Just because.

Well, that and I bet Mr. Ivory that corn totally be popped ON the ear….or ear-ette. I have my dignity riding on that. And by ‘dignity’ I mean a solid ‘nana-nana-boo-boo.’

I so love your “FLOPS” posts. They make me realize I am not alone in the disasters at my house. My corn never came up…my watermelons never got above baseball size..well except for one..and it really had no meat, my zuchini fizzled. Who in the world cannot grow zuchini? That is a no fail veggie!
We only had one out of 10 okras come up and half of my tomato plants did not produce a single tomato. Oh, and my cucumber plnats? How did they do? POOORLY! Only two deformed cukes!
I am sorry about your bean teepee. Our beans never grew more than a foot before they croaked…but I think that had to do with the city spraying RoundUp on the street cracks on a windy day. Imagine that…lol.

THANK YOU! I’m with you on the tomatoes and zucchini. I have five tomato plants and TWO tomatoes. I’ve killed MANY squash and zucchini plants…well, the SQUASH BUGS killed them. I just wasn’t vigilant like last year.

Hah, ’tis true… those you’d-have-to-be-a-total-idiot-with-two-black-thumbs-to-kill-me kind of plants are sneaky. After about 11 years of planting squash, last year I miiight have harvested two. Powdery mildew or some such fiendish disease caught them. I guess every gardener has their days. (Or years… or planting seasons rather.) Needless to say I quite missed my fried squash. *Tear*

I laughed out loud when I scrolled down to the pic of the corn beside the spoon….thanks for the laugh…too funny.
