Before I left for my vacation, little ears of corn have started to appear in my garden. I don't know if they will actually grow successfully, but for now, I think it's pretty exciting!
I know several of you have had difficulty growing corn in the past. What should I expect in the weeks to come? Do I need a scarecrow to scare away any critters that might want to take a gobble?

I had not expected the corn to come this early. Actually, I had given up on growing corn. My plants lagged behind for the longest time, and they were yellowing. on the edges. I figured death would come upon the corn sooner or later. And I'm so pleasantly surprised that my plants are actually starting to pick up.
Below: SFG Box # 3 in which the corn is planted. It's filling out very nicely.
Before I sign off, I must leave you with pictures of my first days in Ocean City, NJ. It's located near Atlantic City, and my hotel is within walking distance of the 2-mile boardwalk and the beautiful ocean! Of course, birds are everywhere, and if you're not careful, they will poop on your head. Ha! But that's the fun of the bird walk.
It gets very cool at night, and I had not expected that. Sometimes in the afternoon, it feels like you are sitting in air conditioning. The weather is so cool. If only Cam didn't have to work. He would love it here. Gorgeous days and cool nights.
