So I was going to post, as I had promised, about another fascinating development in the garden today (it was a cucumber), but that is going to have to wait.
Because I have been noticing over the past few weeks, and wanted to share with you this. And by this I mean the photo above.
The corn is pink. Well, its silk and trunks are pink, I'm not sure about the corn yet. And this is worrying me a little. Why is it pink? Corn isn't pink. You don't hear poems dedicated to the beauty of the pink corn, which is surely what would happen if corn were pink. But it's not.
Now if I had just planted this corn from a seed packet and it came up pink, I'd look at it and go, okay, it's pink corn. But I didn't plant it from a seed packet, this corn is from popcorn kernels that I had in the pantry and threw in the garden for a laugh. Now I know our food gets fiddled with, and it wasn't organic popcorn, it was cheap home-brand popcorn.
To get to the point of this post, I'm a little concerned that the government is experimenting with home-brand products on the masses, and I have just joined the ranks of the experimented upon.
The other option is that I am a complete nutbag and that corn is in fact often pink :p
