Olympia Rain Forest Blue Corn -Redux
I started my second season as a farmer (gardener) with the seed product from last year. All is well in the rain forest, we just need more Sun and heat and less clouds and rain. Forecast looks bleak for the next few weeks. Reclaiming the ground for a garden is a bear on our property so I've invested a little time and money for a couple large elevated boxes. It means I can place them to maximize the elements. Last year I just agitated the existing soil and enhanced it with a mix. This time around I created a raised bed with a better mix and larger area for the corn. The elevated ones will be for my other veggies.
I've have a couple pix to start the year off on the blog. btw, I forwarded a batch of seeds to some (AmInd) friends in SD, NE and OK . Hopefully they'll have some success and join in here. Cbob, I can't help be reminded what the gov did all those years ago to encourage the tribes to put down the arms and become farmers ;-)
