Gardening is all about 'the birds and the bees', I guess. We have 8 corn plants, which are progressing a treat, but have now reached payback time. Will the soil conditions, the amount of water, and the hours of sunlight be sufficient to allow them to bring forth and multiply. So far, on the 8 plants, there are the makings for a dozen cobs, which is encouraging.
Here we have the female part (above) and the male part (below). When the female is sufficiently exposed and blousy, the male will sprinkle his pixie dust, and presto! Darren has already been showing Alannah what we have in store. Hopefully, we will have ripe cobs prior to Christmas.
Getting images in focus is becoming more and more a challenge!
