Our garden this year
was more productive than usual. However Bella is getting to the tomatoes before us - snatching them off of the kitchen counter. And she has pulled a few squash off of the vines. I find that frustrating and interesting at the same time.
We got a couple of good ears of corn but then waited too long to harvest the rest. I didn't mind cutting off the wormy parts but the corn itself turned out to be too tough. Lesson learned for next year.
Yesterday I pulled up the corn stalks and divided them into 3 bunches which now decorate the fence outside the kitchen and the paper box. Saved me about $24 (from getting decorating stalks at the local nursery). Not too bad.
