I love gardening.
Sitting down at the supper table with a plate of food that I grew myself is an experience like no other. Beyond that – having the skill and confidence to be able to grow your own food if needed……..priceless.
One of the crops that I have just recently started growing is corn. Last year I had a small but great looking row of corn going – until they were mercilessly attack by a savage pack of wild squirrels. This year I have a couple of rows going and so far looking good. I am trying some “anti-pest” methods to keep the critters out.
Due to varying soil conditions and limited space – container gardening has been a major part of my planting each year. This year trying out corn in a Rubbermaid tote.
I used regular top soil mixed with some local soil. As you can see from the picture above – the seeds have sprouted very well. I have mulched the container well to help retain moisture (corn likes lots of water).
One concern is the corn being able to stay vertical once it grows tall. I may need to provide some support.
I will keep everyone updated on how it goes with this project.
