I finally got my corn patch finished and planted. Phew!
First I spread a nice layer of rabbit manure, then sprinkled it with diatomaceous earth (because the flies were pretty bad), next was a nice layer of compost, then top soil.
I finished just in time too, since we are getting a nice rain for the rest of the evening, into tomorrow.
I don't know if it's the best time of year for growing corn, but it really doesn't matter to me since 1.) it's old seed, who knows if it will even germinate, and 2) it can't be any worse than the last bit of corn I grew which was looking lovely, started growing ears, then promptly croaked because it got too hot.
So if this round doesn't take, I'll plant again in late January.
It's all good.
