Wishetwurra Farm Garden, July 2019

The Wishetwurra Farm Garden is having a decent season. Here are a few photos.

The corn, after a weak start in cool weather, responded strongly to warmth and a n application of “pro gro” fertilizer. In this photo the tallest plants are eleven feet.

The “Premium Crop” broccoli gave a super first cutting, and is now sending out scores of secondary shoots.

About ten years ago, I rescued some red daylilies from under a pile of rubble when a neighbor’s house was torn down and replaced. It’s multiplying well, and is my favorite. No idea what the variety name is, but it’s a keeper.

About that tall corn.

Last winter I got about a hundred mixed Mexican corn seeds. I carefully planted them in flats, labeled by type. They started well, but when put out in the greenhouse, some critter came along and dug them all out of the flats, killing all but a couple of dozen, which survived being replanted and then being set out in the garden in mid-spring. Some of the plants are now monstercorn. I’m looking forward to seeing what sort of corn they will produce.

Those eleven foot plants that you saw at the beginning of this post?

The tallest one is 13′ 9″ as of this morning.

Here are me, the corn plant, and the tape measure.

You’ll notice that the plant has not yet tasseled, so has not reached full height.
