. . . the sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn . . .

We don't have sheep.

Now, we don't have corn either. Sigh.

Last night the cows broke into the garden and ate all of our corn plants. Luckily we didn't have much else growing in the garden just now, and those other few items were spared.

The beans which were recommended to improve the soil never came up . . . not even one plant! I'm going to assume we got some bad seeds, as we've grown several types of beans before, and never had this kind of failure rate.

Sigh. I think I mentioned previously - we are in NEED of some significant gardening successes, if we're going to keep up our motivation for this work.

So sorry about your corn my friend. Did you have any impact from Ernesto? Have you seen Charlie? I am praying for a gardening success story soon! Do not grow weary in well-doing, for you will soon reap a harvest if you do not give up!Beth Webb

Do you have any of those seeds left? Maybe throw a few in a cup with a moist paper towel and see if they germinate -- might give you a clue.
