True enough, most of the corn survived. This kind of surprised me. This section of the backyard is tough.
Once upon a time, this was the driveway. To the left of the corn is where the gate used to be. On the other side of the fence is the curb cut to the street.
After both working for weeks to prepare the soil, David eventually had to use the claw of a claw hammer to break the ground up.
There is also a watermelon plant in the top right of the photo between the corn rows.
This section will not be used for planting again. A storage shed will take this spot this winter.
