Need to start launching from Australia at this rate. Maybe then they'll show up in the correct vertical orientation.

Really seems like it's all become so carefully curated and commoditized that the personality and rough edges and accidents that made any of it noteworthy have been hewn away. American culture is populated by what might as well be walking, talking avatars designed solely to billboard for Disney and Nestle and a few big corporate interests. But, wtf do I know. Maybe I'm just too old for this shit.

Of course not. Rich people are fucking weasels. How do you think they get rich? They weasel the system. They weasel the profits of other people's productivity. They leave death and chaos in their wake. They lie, cheat, steal and rewrite the rules to suit them.

That pale red soil looks nitrogen poor and alkaline. Needs compost or fertilizer worked in early. Corn is a heavy feeder. Mulch helps, too. Once pollen is up it's probably too late to amend. Every time you grow something is an opportunity to do it better next time, though. Don't be disheartened.

You can use a balanced fertilizer (same number across NPK values, like 10-10-10) if that's what you have. If you were buying something, I'd go with like a 6-3-3, or similar. Ideally, an organic fortified with ammonium sulphate (if my guess about your soil being alkaline is correct). There's quite a few kiln dried manure products made this way. Might ask at a local turf supply shop. They're gaining popularity and shops like that have large bags at good prices. Organic inputs tend to have micronutrients and supply what the soil bacteria need to improve the soil over time. They're like concentrated compost, in a sense. Problem with compost is you need a lot of it, by comparison, but it's better for soil health most of the time.

Spacing is pretty important, too. You want corn spaced about a foot apart.

I tried to attach a photo of some corn I grew last year... will see if that works.

Yeah, fresh manure can be pretty hot/high in free ammonia. If you can mix it in yearly piles with leaf litter and shredded garden clippings, and then use last years pile it's pretty safe. But, you don't know how rich it is without experimenting. Mixing some aged stuff into planting areas like 6 weeks ahead of planting and then side dressing a couple times over the grow season is what I've heard others do, but I haven't tried raw inputs like that myself. Not sure how much and all that.
Corn does need a fair bit of nitrogen to grow well, though. That much I'm sure about.

Thanks! No. Just a hobbyist with a fair bit of experience and a decent amount of education on things botanical.

I know this sounds crazy, but hear me out: 2 bed covers. Then, every time it's time to wash one, as you go to switch 'em, you get her excited about the one that's been in the closet since last wash. No more sad times.

The only attention this should be getting is inquiry into whether sanctions were violated to make it happen.

If any of those "freely provided resources" can identify you, they're gonna tell hr about it, who will then find a way to fire you before your problems become their problems. That's the "early intervention" corporations are paying those services to provide.

Just leave. They're probably listening to you while trying to remain motionless because they can't stand people in the morning. Go home. Break the silent stale mate.

They're not a political party. There's no actionable platform, no leadership, no direction. It's not possible to band together around things that they're against and still get things done. Cry all day about it, but any adult knows you can't turn back the clock.

To lead you have to have a way forward. Republicans haven't been able to figure this out for decades because they aren't a cohesive group. They're a backwards coalition of bastards and need to be divided into their corners under dunce caps until they can coalesce into separate parties under actionable terms.

Problem is the majority of money is tied up overseas and in shit like the stock exchange, the insurance market, crazy real estate speculation and various other investments. If any decent portion of that gets leveraged back into material goods everyone trying to simply live is suddenly poor as fuck and starving to death. The value of money is based on so many assumptions it's unsound.

Not that you're wrong in practice, but there's nothing at guaranteeing that practice is stable and people's lives depend on that very stability.

Pan of water brought to boiling on the stove. Add grounds 30 seconds after removing from heat. Wait several minutes. Strain through fine mesh seive directly into cup.

No machine or dedicated apparatus required.
