Garden Irony

I've been envying my neighbor's sweet corn.  It's tall and a beautiful green and just looks yummy.  All the stalks are the same height and it just looks beautiful.  Your typical chemically fertilized corn.   My corn is a little different in height, not a deep green, and not incredibly beautiful.  Since we've been on vacation it's also very weedy (working on that, promise).  Boy, did I wish that corn was mine, chemicals and all.

At least, that was the way things looked YESTERDAY.  Last night we had a huge storm with tons of wind.  Now my neighbor's corn is a beautiful deep green pile of leaves.  My corn however, is still standing.  Just goes to show you that even when the grass is greener, that doesn't mean it's better.

  1. Ha! Good point! (Our garden is terribly weedy, too, I need your brother to fix that for me!)
