The pink lilies are Asiatic lily Tiny Athlete. Don’t know the name of the red lily because a neighbor gave me them, and I don’t remember what the reddish pink small flower plant is. It starts out almost red and then fades to light pink
It was breezy here today. When I went to water the gardens this evening a bunch of my corn was leaning. It's wind protected on 3 sides but I don't know what I can do for the 4th. I think it's big enough to do the side dressing now. I went through and stood the worst leaners up better and moved a little soil around the roots. I think I should have firmed the ground better when I planted them. I had left wooden stakes in the ground at both ends of each row when I planted them. So I got a spool of twine and ran a string down each side of the corn. I don't know if that's a proper technique; but I hope it helps. From what I read; once I side dress it with blood meal it should help the corn shoot up. The tallest ones are getting close to knee height.
Thank you. I’m going to do that then. I think we used all the soil I bought but I can buy another bag. I have a pile of dirt from my yard; but it’s mostly sand.It has been a lot of years since I planted corn but I remember going through the patch and mounding dirt around each plant several times during their growth. I think this was to help them stay upright during their growth.
Ooo fun! I bet my grandpa would love to see a p51 flyover. He worked on their radios during ww2.We recently had a flyover by an actual D-Day survivor C-47 and a P-51, and all I got was a piece of them as they disappeared behind a house.
