Yesterday I got home to signs of the sweet corn coming into flower. I had hoped they would have put on more height but if I get a cob off of each plant which would give me at least 33, I’ll be very happy indeed.
Now onto my third obsession of this growing year: my melons. I happily told you all of the discovery of a baby melon forming on one of my plants but I went into the greenhouse yesterday and found it dying, OH! The pain!!! But with further searching I found this little beauty, its flower has not yet opened so I’ll be checking it each day and when it does open I’ll help it along with transferring the pollen from the numerous male flowers that I do have to it’s stamens and hope that this would ensure its chances of developing into a full blown melon.
My buddlia standard is really bringing in the butterflies, saw this comma butterfly yesterday.
