Potted Corn

The potted corn is still growing like mad. Take a look:

You can see the different batches we planted, all about a week apart (furthest from the camera/tallest group of three pots were planted a month ago). Three batches of three pots and then a solo pot we found hidden away in the shed. When I planted the corn, I added a shovel full of compost from our bin into each pot. I'm hoping that will last for a while. Last time we fertilized with weekly applications of compost tea once the plants got a couple of feet tall. We'll probably use that strategy this time, too.

(Oh, the pallets in the background are ones my daughters scavenged [with permission] from a house down the street. The want to build some kind of "fort" out of them, but haven't gotten around to it yet.)

The radishes are about ready to harvest:

This weekend we're hoping to transplant some of the stuff we planted in small containers (sunflowers, cucumbers, etc.).
