Dang it. Dang it. Dang it. Had one I really shoulda kept it opened today but it got rained on. The previous pollination looks like it's not viable. Poor weather or poor pollination. It was cold on the pollination day I dont think it got above 60.

In the background the potatoes are almost going to smother the corn but I think the corn will pull ahead in the nick of time. The switch to warm weather should favor the corn.

One last note I did eat all the popcorn I produced last year. It was quite good.

One last idea... as much as I hate roundup I wonder if I could kill the wire grass with it then burn the residue off so that less roundup would get into the soil. If it rains then a lot probably goes into the soil. But during a dry stretch of weather it could be applied then all the dead dry plant residue could be burned off and only a small amount of systemic herbicide would remain in the ground & the rest would burn away.
