Corn planted

I put in four ~40 foot rows of Who Gets Kissed? OP sweet corn.  This is ground where winter wheat and potatoes grew last year.  I'm using the plot in a much more contoured way this year.  The rows are still N-S, but I'm leaving the low areas for later plantings.

The West end, as usual, is the hardest area.  I hope to get way over there this year and dig out the grass. Then I can put in a nice hay and just stay out of there.  The problem is that it stays wet, and if it stays wet, it can't be worked very well.  During the time that it's wet, the sod keeps growing.  Catch 22.

Elliot thinks the extremely rare wheat in the test plot is his own personal cat grass.

The flock loves tearing into the compost pile!
