Really tall corn plants! My estimate is that they’re 6.5-7 feet tall– based on how tall they are in comparison to me/my family members!
Here you can see the beginning husks– this is taken a few weeks ago. If you’re having trouble seeing it look to the direct left of the stalk.
Here you can see a couple– mostly, see the husk forming right above the lower-most stalk of the front corn plant.
Corn plants all together! Like a very miniature corn field.
Here are the peppers. They are still medium-small here. They’re pretty big now!
I’ve lost two to rot like this– They get too much sun when they grow on top like this… Although I do think these plants should have grown a bit taller and leafier, which may have shaded them better. Molecular Sheep thinks the tomatoes next to them might have stunted their growth a bit, but I really can’t complain much.
I picked the ones that rotted, so they don’t steal nutrients from the other peppers (there’s two more on each plant). He was still little when I picked him– and rather cute.
… at least until you turn him over!
