First taste of success
This was my first year at gardening.. I just started back in May (started kinda late). This was only a test run to make sure I wouldn't get tired of doing it and that I actually had what it took to take something from seed to something that was edible.
The ear of corn from the largest of all the plants was ready today, or at least ready as I understood what to look for. Silks were dry and the kernels were milky when punctured. Me and my wife just ate it and it was the best tasting corn I'd ever had. Not sure if that was because I grew it, or it was simply superior to the 4 for a dollar ears you can buy in the grocery store around here. The rest aren't far behind, me and my wife both said the same thing after we finished the one that was ready... "I want more".
I know it's not the prettiest thing out there, but it means a lot to me. Next year I'll be putting a lot more resources into it and expanding my little 12 by 3 foot plot to a good sized garden.
