Morning Gardening

Green Beans and Corn 6-17-12Morning sun on the green beans and corn.

I went out before breakfast and picked the green beans.  I didn’t get as many as the other day.  While I was in the garden I dug up two potato plants that had dried up. I got 4 big potatoes and a few medium sized.    I have one tomato that is just about vine ripe and I am dying to pick it.

My Dad will be home today from his Bluegrass Festival.  I hope I get the green beans canned before he arrives.

CornCobs6-17-12The corn ears are getting larger.  When do you know they’re ready to pick?  Last year my Dad took care of the corn so I didn’t pay any attention to the proper picking time.  Guess I could ask him when he gets home but, what do ya’ll think.?

  1. Garden looks great. I’ve never tried corn so will be interested to know when you are suppose to harvest.

    • Judy, My Dad says that the silks turn brown when the corn is ready. Most of the silks were lightly brown to begin with. He told me I could also pull back some of the husk and take a peek. I’ll be watering this evening since all the rain has gone around us this past week.

  2. Just pick the corn when you feel like the ears are big enough – you’ll be able to tell. Check out the corn at the grocery store and compare your ears to the ones in the store.

    Glad you’ve had a little rain – we’ve been teased but haven’t seen a drop in weeks!
    Enjoy life,
