      Harvested all my corn today.
      Ended up with about a hundred and fifty useable ears.
      I planted 4- 16 foot long rows a foot apart with the corn planted 6in apart in the rows.
      This is the Yukon Chief dwarf corn that was developed in 1958 by the University of Alaska.
      We're eating some fresh but I'm in the process now of canning a bunch up.
      It's not quite as sweet as some of the other varieties of sweet corn and of course the ears are smaller being a dwarf corn.
      But it grew really well on my garden this year so I'll take it.
      I did have some stocks that formed two or three ears but generally only one year was a decent size and the other ones were small or not fully developed.
      But that's okay cuz my chickens will love those little tiny ears.
      All in all I'm happy with this cultivar of corn and do plan to grow it again next year.

          Looks delicious .
          This has been a great gardening
          year for sure.
          Mine garden tapered off, compost
          pile growing
          but
          if this is to be the “new norm,”
          I may need another freezer roud:

            That Sweet corn really looks good...
            This was an excellent year for green beans.. (finally)
            All my Outside tomatoes did better than my Green House toms... Just couldn't keep the temp below 90 on those hot sunny days.

              Emptied my potato half drums and got the spuds hardened off.
              Grew different amounts of 5 varieties this year. Iditareds, Purple Vikings, Yukon Golds, Gold Rush russets, and last year's taste test winner the German Butterball's.
              Got my new Garlic bed in and planted.
              4 rows Russian red, 2 rows Music both ordered from Filaree garlic farm. And 3 rows from the farmers market she thought might be Music. So 54 total garlic planted.
              The plan is to plant onions on the front half next spring.
              Pulled my 4 small pumpkin as they had started to color up and I have to head to work.
              Got the last of my Zucchini and Broccoli in.
              ~a gallon of broccoli and several more winter squash.
              Also took the last two Golden Acre green cabbage and last two Red Express cabbage.
              Carrots looked good so got pulled. I believe these were a Nantes variety.
              The only thing I have left is a couple of large Acorn squash that I hope ripen up.
              Hopefully get my dad to harvest those for me if I'm not home in time.
