Co-op Matters

From the Garden ...

Corn, Corn, Corn
Pike Co-op Employees
Grow Tall Stalks
  Belgian Transplant
Proud of First Tomatoes
 
Felix Jackson and Shawn Hughes, employees at Pike Farmers Co-op, planted some Hickory King corn in a plot next to the store. With the plentiful rainfall this year, the corn grew tall stalks. By the end of July, they had to use a ladder to reach some of the ears of corn. The largest ears were as long as 13 inches.   Philippe Mahieux with AFC’s Computer Services grew his first tomatoes since moving to the United States from Belgium in 1985. They were the Bonnie Better Boy variety.
