Harvesting Corn Has Begun and our Tomatoes are Turning RED

H.G. says, "First variety of corn is a new bi-color variety called LATTE. Our corn tastes so good because we place a teaspoon of honey with every corn seed at planting.  This is time consuming, but well worth it."

Hmmm, H.G. has very interesting
...GARDENING HUMOR!

 

Well, anyway, our corn is ready for harvest on the farm.  And take a look at our tomatoes! This is the week where we are seeing them change...
