Harvested all the corn this morning, planted 8 seedlings late september. Ended up with 10 cobs all up but half of them hadnt pollinated well. The yellow pear tomato in this garden is going crazy, there must be over 100 tomatoes in that jungle, Im going to have to learn how to make relish me thinks.

That corn looks better than any I have ever managed to produce and I keep bees. I reckon that tomato jungle needs a bit of a prune out before it takes over the whole back yard.

Gee thanks Burnsy :)

Definately the best corn Ive grown to date, even if it was just a minimal amount. I tried using the ol' bend over plant and shake the pollen on its neighbour trick, seemed to work about 50% so need to work on that again next year.

This tommie plant is Mrs Charlies and she wanted to let it run wild so its all on her lol. Got me buggered how she's going to rummage through it to harvest. Crazy girl

Grow more plants in a block so the wind does the job.
Add beans and pumpkins and you get more beneficial bang for your buck per square metre.
