As I’ve mentioned, the weeds have gotten slightly out of control recently. Much to my surprise, what I had originally thought was some kind of crab grass or whatever turns out to be CORN! I first noticed it in the alleyway between our garage and the neighbor’s fence. This area doesn’t get a ton of sun, so I’m really surprised that corn was able to germinate here.
If I hadn’t noticed the ears with tassles, I probably wouldn’t have realized what it was.
Not only is there corn volunteering in that alleyway garden, there’s more in the driveway-side garden, and some in the front yard! All of the corn volunteers are really small and I doubt the ears will really develop into anything edible, but I’m going to let the ones that aren’t in the front yard keep growing to see what happens. Just when I was telling K about this weird happenstance, he noticed a squirrel running by carrying an ear of corn!
