To Annie regarding "tips on growing corn". Pretty simple: dig furrow, plant seeds, cover, be patient! Oh yes, and deal with raccoons!

Thanks Sentient Biped, I like this site:

Mushrooms: Your Garden’s Best Friend

Comment by Sentient Biped on January 19, 2013 at 3:35pm

Why Mushrooms might be your garden's best friend - from central Texas garden blog.  This ties into Joan's post about mycelium, as well.  

I don't know if the garden has ONE best friend - I think there are lots.  Mushrooms and other fungi are there, but so are beneficial insects, birds that eat harmful insects, frogs, lizards, and some snakes.  I do like that we look at gardening as a more and more complete picture, as opposed to just sticking things into dirt and adding chemicals to make them grow.  This past year I  have definitely thought more about mushrooms and other fungi, than before.

That's beautiful corn Annie.  I may buy some seeds.

Joan, that's a neat looking bug.  At least it looks like a VW bug.  I used to have several of them.  Would be fun to drive that way, what with all the stares & comments it would get.

Loved the car Joan. She herself seems to be happy with her present than the past.

And the corn too. Its beautiful.

Sentient-  I can't remember the specifics, but I don't think it is edible.  I thought I would give it a try. If anyone has any tips on growing corn, I'd love to hear them!

Joan- The photo of the green car made me smile!  Thanks for sharing.

Annie,

That's the first I've seen of that corn.  No wonder there is high demand - that's beautiful!

Hello All!

Perhaps you remember photos of beautiful multi-colored corn in gorgeous shades of blues, pinks and yellows going around the web.  The corn is called "Glass gem" and has been on back-order for the seed bank that produces it.  I just received an email (I signed up to be alerted when seeds would be available) and they are in!  I just ordered some.  Since there is such high interest (5,000 people on the alert list) and a limited number of seeds, they are limiting purchases to one package per customer.  In case any of you are interested in giving this corn a try, you can purchase seeds here:

Although you do not need to be a member to purchase from the Native Seeds seedbank, you do need to sign up and have a user's name.

I used to love climbing trees when I was young, so I've been checking-out the gnarly bark on the African tree to determine if it could be climbed without a rope or ladder.  Looks like it could be :)
