I once swore I would never grow corn…

…that because my young body had been made mostly of corn syrup and corn chips and corn-fed animals I didn’t want corn in any garden I’d grow.

Now even as I turn more and more towards perennials, I hope to grow a jungle of maize every remaining year of my life.

(this year I grew Oxacan Green and Cherokee White Eagle maize interspersed with squash and beans fertilized only with my own pee-charged forest-made biochar and a tiny bit of rabbit poo from our pets and irrigated and watered so far not even once amidst the tree stumps that I left in the ground in what had been forest 5 months before. I grew buckwheat on the beds first for a month and now am cutting all weeds in the bed and leaving them in place as green manure)
