    You both will receive 2 orange padded envelopes from me of indian flour corn seed. One envelope is multi colored kernels that we're on the cobs and the other envelope is just red & purple kernels on the cobs. I think I sent you both enough to get a good little corn patch going next year.

    I sowed 2 kernels in each hole about 8" apart and about 3 inches deep, in rows 3' apart. I pulled the weaker of the two when they got about 6" tall so i had just one plant about every 8" or so and they seem to be growing well. Remember... this corn gets a good 8' tall so plan accordingly, so it don't shade out the rest of your garden.

    Thanks for taking some of this Indian flour corn :)

    Slight delay with yours Sumi. Apparently the post Master forgot that I had to fill out customs declaration, so your poackages were delivered back to me. I found them in my mail box just a few minutes ago. I'll fill out the customs declaration this evening and take them back to the post office tomorrow morning, when the post office is open. Sorry for the delay... :(

    No worries and no need to apologise! The PO should've sorted this with you when you went to post it. Strange that they didn't actually.

    Well that what I get for dealing with a bunch of crealbillies -:lol

    The Post Master probably thought it was being mailed it Ireland Illinois which there is no such town or city. I'm probably the only one ever from creal springs to mail a package to the country of Ireland, let alone two packages, Lord forbid... The Post Master must have been all confused (not uncommon for creal springs). I'll get to the bottom of it tomorrow though.

    You gotta remember, when I said I live in the middle of nowhere, I wasn't lying, I really meant that I'm past bum f--- Egypt. I was talking to my wife a few nights ago and we're are thinking seriously about moving even deeper into the woods and really far past bum f--- Egypt. I would like to live on a dead end gravel road, where we are the only ones on the road, only one way in or out. She agreed whole heatedly.

    Sounds like you're nearly off the map where you are now and you want to fall off completely? ;) I can understand that appeal though… It certainly does have it's benefits, being out there away from everything. Cons too!
