One proud Mama...
These sweet little children planted that whole garden full of sweet corn. A whole pound of seed. That's a lot, in case you were wondering. It took us a couple hours, but we got it done. The mop was our secret weapon- poked the holes with the handle so Mama didn't have to bend over so much. Oh, and they are showing off their pink hands. I'm sure my Dad knows why the seeds are pink... They had hot fudge brownie sundaes for lunch as a reward. The guys will put in the other plants and seeds.

The pink is poison to keep down disease (anthroclose??) .. tell them to wash wash wash those possum hands.

We had corn on the cob for dinner..not local but from FL...not too bad but of course not as good as when we get local corn. I am proud of you for thinking of a mop handle to makes corn holes...anything to save one's back.

Love you!
