I just heard someone walk by our garden and comment that we were growing “Summer’s Gold!” After I thought about it for a moment, I totally got what they were talking about! Our CORN!
Corn is the true taste of summer and it’s growing awesomely inoury garden! Watching it grow is one of our daily hightlights of playing in the garden! But picking it and eating it is the BEST part of having a garden with my kids!
We’ve learned that corn needs about 3 weeks to grow after the silks form. Remember, to teach our kids about the different parts of the plant. The silks are those stringy things on the end of the husks that look like hair! The best thing about the silks is that when they dry out and turn brown, it’s time to harvest the corn! My kids, since they were little have always loved hunting for the dry silks!
