Container Sweet Corn

Sarah over at Sarah's Seedlings  details how those in apartments and with small yards can have their own little harvest of delicious sweet corn.     It would take a pretty good sized container to hold it to maturity but the reward in the middle of summer would be well worth the effort.

The miracle of growth

Every year at this time, it amazes me to plop a few little seeds into some dirt, add water and sun, and watch a plant grow from it.    Silly and simple.   But miraculous.    These are baby Bacopa plants that will turn into a lovely hanging planter in a few months (fingers crossed).
