The Corn Cross-Pollinated! Yippee!

The 2009 growing season in Southern California has produced a bountiful harvest for us: We've enjoyed several servings of lettuce, spinach, collards, string beans, bell peppers, tomatoes.

I planted some corn a while back and you never know if it will properly pollinate and produce. Much to my surprise this morning, there are currently 4 ears of corn on the stalks! I am so excited.
Rosemary, oregano, and basil are prolific. Mom's blackeyed peas are sprouting and I am hoping the okra will flower. What a year! Freedom!
