Corn and Beans

The corn is starting to tassel out. My corn is quite mixed this year -- some areas doing well, others stunted. I figure that is because of differences in pH of soil. The pH before we started was under 5.0. Lime was broadcast (by hand) and I don't think it was very effective. Next year, I will use more lime (earlier) and I will apply an organic fertilizer to the corn.

The yellow beans are also beginning to produce. We have 4 rows so there will be lots to freeze. The green beans are into their third picking. So far I have frozen 20 quarts and given away about 30 pounds of green beans.
