Great shot Sam, I love the protective stance of the daughter on the left.... meanwhile daughter on the right must feel very special. :wink:

Thanks, Midgin. They're still like that, too.

I think she was also hoping to pick some of the beans that we were growing 'up' the corn.

I'm sure I've told this one before - Clare took some to kindy for show and tell, which they cooked and gave each child a spoonful of. Found out later that one of the children was in tears because she could only have one spoonful. They still go to school together, so when we grow it a cob always goes to school for her.

I think it was, Luzy. And it had the beans growing up the corn to help with the nitrogen, too.

An excellent example of companion planting then, Sam - esepcially with those extra companions ready to pick the crop!

I must admit, I don't think any of the beans made it upstairs to be cooked. Just like the peas.

Terrific photo, Sam. You have me thinking, now though, about (almost) instant shade.
