darn you have a nice chunk of land there. How bout we replace all that grass with Sunfowers?
I can't handle the idea of having to mow that.

Sincerely,

Ken, beautiful piece of land you have there.  What do you grow?  Purpose of fields?

I cannot believe that that shack was built in a day, you really have to be kidding.  I know that there are barn raising, but that is raising, not painting!!!  Have a wonderful day, beautiful day, great health.  Cindi

Cindi,The fields are hayfields of my friend and neighbor that lives next door.
This storage shed is built by the Amish and they deliver to your door.
It is a beautiful area we live in and in the foreground is just my lawn(about an acre lot adjoining the home property and behind where the shed is located is raspberrys and fruit trees. To the left of the dirt pile is our garden.Not too much in it yet,however we are passing last frost date now.Sweet corn will be planted this week.

Ken, sorry you lost me here.  The Amish deliver to your door.  Please elaborate on what you are saying.  I would love to see more pictures of your home area.  It looks very beautiful.  It reminds me of our climate, but ours is way more bushy looking, yours appears as lush as ours, but more cleared area, beautiful.  Do you plant the S2 (little 2), supersweets?  That is the most wonderful corn that I have ever grown, holds it sugar content long after harvest and is great for the freezer.  I mourn that I have not grown corn for many a year because of the bears that devastated our corn patch so badly about 3 years ago.  The bears played among the corn and took down the stalks, ate the corn, leaving  piles of husks behind, as well as the stalks behind and had a trail of stalks and corn for along ways into the bush.  It was unbelievable what they did during one late summer night.  What a remarkable critter, for surely.  Gotta give them credit for power.  I am going to try a small amount again this year, as an experiment.  Our land has been cleared, leaving little groves of coniferous trees, and the underbrush is not prevalent anymore.  I think that this may deter the "bear path" that we live along.  So maybe, with a whisp and a prayer, I can again grow corn.  Have the wonderful day, beautiful life and good health.  Cindi

By deliver to your door,I mean they build the building at their location and transport it on specially built trailers to your preferred sight.
We don't grow the s2 supersweet here because isolation is an issue.The valley we live in is like a bowl carved into the top of the mountain that surrounds us and it gets a lot of wind.This creates a pollination issue with the other corns grown nearby. We have grown jackpot and serendipity varieties with pretty good results though.The only problem the past couple years has been japanese beetles eating the silks off the corn .They will devour it !Hopefully this year the beetle cycle will be less.
I will take the road around the rim of the mountain  here and get some photos.I,ve been wanting to do that for awhile anyhow.       Have a great day!!                                               Ken

Ken, I am serious, your place sounds like something out of a dream world.  Please do take some pictures and show us.

I have grown several varieties of the s2 cultivar, beautiful, and I know what you mean about cross pollination.  Having the sweetness revert to field corn would be the biggest bummer on earth.  I grew one variety one year called Ivanhoe, it was a white supersweet corn and man was it good. Pale yellow when cooked.  I still like the Golden Jubilee for freezing, they have improved this variety from the "old days" and it is always excellent.  I get my dozens and dozens from a farmer in a neighbouring town that is about e0 minutes drive from here and it is reasonably priced and ALWAYS fresh and oh so sweet.  Can't wait for the end of August, corn coming on a'plenty.  I can isolate from other corn, as there are not many people around here that grow much of vegetables and wind is certainly a non-issue anyways.  Well, Jerry get on with things and get some pictures for all us drooling about what we are going to see.  Best of this beautiful day, and great health.  Cindi

Ken, beautiful pictures.  Take some more of looking north!!!  I love the mounded mountain in the background.  Valleys have always held a mystique to me, I don't know why, but I think they are a beautiful part of nature.  If we ever move, I know of a valley north to us by quite a ways that I would love to live in, if we ever moved.  But we live in such a place of beauty that moving may never occur.  One day I will define my property and try to describe it so it can be understood.  We live on a very pretty piece of five acres and it is very secluded.  Best of a beautiful day, great life, and great health wishes to all.  Cindi
