cross pollination

that stuff in the middle is a really good sign.
that's what my cousin troy tells me.
we talk about our gardens at the family yard while the kids are swimming in the pool.
tonight he told me that potatoes are his favorite thing he's growing this year.
hard he says.
but his favorite.
something about having to pack it down a lot.
i think that's what he said.
no idea what that means yet.
i told him the corn was my favorite this year.
he soaked the seeds that i planted that are now growing right before your very eyes.
i don't know what all of that stuff in the middle is called.
i just know it means it's cross pollination time.
i love all of the shades of green and the seeds changing to brown.
the clusters give me the creeps.
i love my little growing stalks of corn.
the vegetable too;)
happy summer!
