The strangest thing happened this week. I had sowed corn seeds earlier this year that didn't bloom. Last week, my mom and Lorna took over the space and planted lime, chilli and some random vegetables. Just as baby sprouts started to appear, a single stalk of corn burst from the earth and started flowering. I think the heat and humidity must have germinated the seeds. Maybe some of that digging and tossing of earth around must have cross-pollinated the seeds as well.
