My Gardner Guy's corn...

Besides growing a lots of produce and many pumpkins My Gardner Guy loves his corn. When he was growing up his family would grow corn and sell it. This family tradition was shared with his Grandparents, his Parents,  a few Uncles and one Aunt. It was indeed a family affair. Every year around the 24 of July he would stand on the side of the road known as 200 east near Glovers Lane under a make shift  vegetable stand which in his words was just a tarp put up for shade. This would go on for about 3-4 weeks the selling price ranged  between .60 cents to $1.00 a dozen. His favorite corn seed to plant is serendipity!!!

Coming from Las Vegas most of my corn was bought in the store...I stilled loved it and enjoyed having corn on the dinner table during the corn season. I have since gain a appreciation for fresh corn from the garden to the table. We can enjoy a lot more of it...breakfast, lunch and dinner...LOL. This year we have given quite a few neighbors some corn to enjoy...
