unexpected harvest

Any of us that have a lawn, garden or any type of outdoor space have to deal with weeds. Sometimes they even grow through concrete! Resilient little suckers.

So my husband and I go out our back gate to cross the alley to attend our neighbor's annual bratfest, and what do we see growing on the other side of our privacy fence?

A five foot high corn stalk.

With 3 ears of corn on it!

I did not plant this, and it seemed really random. But here we are: urban farmers, with corn to prove it.

Hope everyone has a great Monday!


  1. I find this monumentally funny! :-) Happy Monday to you, Old MacGreta! Ha!

  2. That's too funny! Did you at least eat the corn?

  3. i LOVE that surprise. welp, there's dinner!


I adore comments. So leave one. Or two. Or as many as you want.
