Corn and the unhappy iguana

Picked my first two ears of corn a few days ago and realized growing corn really does work. Also learned that the earth/dirt has to be better than most of my yard. Not sure if some areas have too many rocks, sand or maybe construction debris. Anyway the next crop will be better planned.

Asked my neighbor when they were ready to pick and he said now before they become 'cow food'. Not sure he is familiar with northern sweet corn which I think has a longer season and still be tender and sweet.

These were pretty small but very tasty and bugs had munched on the tops a bit so glad I didn't wait much longer. Decided to ad them to a tuna fish mix for sandwiches.

This guy has a habit of falling out of the palapa roof where I live. Today with a large thud ... and then the head-bobbing meaning he is mad.  I think he was unhappy enough to stand his ground while I took the foto

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
