The sunshine isn't only in the sky these days. It's blessing the gardens too, with yellow tomatoes, yellow squash and that favored veggie, sweet corn. Our first planting of Early Sunglow is maturing now, and it's coming on quickly because of the high temperatures we've been experiencing the past two weeks. 100 degrees is not fun, and it's a wonder the corn isn't popping in the fields.
