Sweetcorn silk

I was at the allotment this morning checking out the sweetcorn.  The cobs are set and growing nicely. But this is what really caught my eye. The sun was shining on the silk. I hope that I have been able to capture some of the beauty with my humble camera

    Hi Jean, today I took I took a left turn and guess where I ended up?????? Did you guess your allotment? I found your plots from the fabulous photos– the crazy tomato,the beans and your corn, tall and husky and silky and what about that lemon grass, you could feed a village. Made me feel a little, dare I say green 🙂
    What a beautiful spot you have chosen to grow all those lovely veggies and how well they are all doing – really well done.

      Sorry I missed you at my allotment today Tatiana, I took my grandson to the movies. Thank you for your lovely comment. It’s so peaceful at Beelarong Farm it is a lovely place to grow my veggies. The lemon grass does love that spot up the corner. Help yourself any time. I picked some yesterday and it’s such a strong plant I had to hack a piece off. Went there yesterday morning to do some planting of your seeds and bulbs but with the heat, I reckon it must have been 30 degrees, I decided to leave it for a couple of days. Might be a bit cooler later in the week. So I just watered, and took my photos of the sweet corn silks.

    Do you actively spread the pollen yourself or do you let nature do it?
