Without this book I never would have been inspired to plant corn in my front yard. Without corn in my front yard I never would have intrigued an Amish man to be so tickled at the site that he stopped and took a picture of my front yard for his wife.
What was I thinking? Well, I wanted to get the neighbors talking and generate a little interest in my front yard. We recently removed a pine tree in that spot and the stump has not been removed yet. I had some leftover topsoil from another project and I covered the stump with about 3 inches of it and thought, “What should I plant?” I have read about a “Three Sister’s Garden” in which corn, beans, and squash are inter-planted together. I wanted to try it and that looked like a good spot. The topsoil is full of rocks and I honestly didn’t think the seeds would sprout. As you can see the seedlings are up this weekend I will be top dressing it with some Sweet Peet Mulch and continue watching it grow.
