It’s been a week since I first planted the little lettuces. Happily, they are strong and growing. We’ve now added corn, Swiss chard, and red bell pepper. The corn makes me giggle.
When I think of corn in our yard it reminds me of a house that we looked at when we were buying our current house. What a surprise! It’s in a quiet, nice little nearby neighborhood. We walked in and whoa! there were 5 men sitting in the living room watching a monster TV that took up one entire wall, covering the window. The kitchen had dirty pans on the stove, greasy dishes in the sink. The guest bathroom had a sagging ceiling. The bedrooms seemed to all house a couple living in them. The master bathroom had underwear hanging on the broken shower door. Then we went to look at the yard – wow! there was corn growing. And that’s why I now laugh to myself when I think of corn in my yard.
Enjoy your day!
