My dream house would have an attached conservatory or greenhouse. I would grow all the herbs I like to cook with and fresh vegetables for my table. Of course there would be lush houseplants and beautiful flowers that I would cut to decorate my home. Alas, it is all a dream. Although, with my allergies the only way I can grow things is inside.
Luckily, my husband does not mind doing a little gardening. I buy the seeds; he grows them. One of the most interesting things we grow is “Tall Corn.” The record for “Tall Corn” was 21 feet a year or so ago. We plant this corn in front of our picture window as it does not have any shade. Yes, I plant corn for shade! I wanted to get an early start on our “Tall Corn.” I planted it in a window box and I leave it on the floor in front of the picture window.
When company comes, I move it to the window between the kitchen and front room to clear floor space.
