In the garden, one day your are “in” and the next day you are “out”. Most of the corn has been cleared out of the garden to make way for winter seeds – broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, onions, and beets so far. Some stalks of corn remained to allow the beans to finish up and to provide a bit of shade to the pumpkins below. Fine.
Garden inspection this evening revealed an infestation of biblical proportions. Tassels resembled something that had been dipped in batter and deep fried like a Twinkie. The corn was covered in critters.
The stalks were yanked and broken down into the green waste. This isn’t going into MY compost.
