Hooray I found a new cord and even managed to get other fancy bits and pieces that can upload onto the I-pad. And am now trying to manage this through the blogger app. I expect all you very clever people out there might be clever enough to have sorted this all out. But I figure I spend time working in the garden and a lot less time on computers.... Let me know if you use the app and if you find it easier or a hinderance.
Anyhow despite a range of blogs I had hope to talk about last week I thought I would discuss my corn instead.
Doesn't it look lovely? Well the rats, aphids and ants thought so. So in a bed 1700 x 2000 mm I managed to get 7, yes 7 cobs to take inside. The rats ate about 60% of the crop while the aphids attacked the rest. I have stripped the corn the rats started with and plan on giving them to the neighbours chickens who I am happy to let eat. I can only hope the rats starve now (wishful thinking).
I do hope your corn is doing a thousand times better than my patch at the moment. A least I now have a new patch to plant up in which is greatly exciting as I have much to add that might be pest unfriendly.
