MGM – Monday Garden Minute – Liquid Gold

This idea came to me in a dream –ย Monday feature- a one-minute segment about what is cooking in the garden ๐Ÿ™‚ย ๐ŸŒฑ


Corn Leftover Liquid Gold.


Cooked local farmer’s corn in boiled water for 20 minutes. I love this yummy snack. No matter how many corncobs I eat, its never enough.


Apologies for the spilled over stove spots. Ugh.


Save the cooled off the golden liquid and pour it into the water pitcher.


Because of the vitamins and nutrients content that will serve as a conditioner for your plant’s soil and nourish the plants themselves with minerals.


This is my kitchen aloe that gets pinched off as the nutritional addition for the homemade smoothies.


This experimental Summer colorful leaf planter is being watered with leftover corncob nutrients. Not an edible, but a colorful alluring eye pleaser. At least for me. However, now that I am thinking about edible plants, I have to mention that there are three potato vines in here. The purple and green potato vines will have tubules of potatoes inside the planter later on. So if you are famished, that decorative potato vine plant will come to a good use ๐Ÿ™‚


MGM – did it take less than 60 seconds to view the post?

I hope so ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a very green Monday, everyone.

  1. What a great use for corn water. Would have NEVER thought of that. Beautiful planters you have designed, Luda! Oh, and my iPhone stop watch said it only took 32.8 seconds to get through ! Maybe you should place a checkered flag at the end of these “speed posts!!!”

    1. Well, I am so happy someone checked on me. EWF, should be my final review editor. Thank you for your kindness about the colorful planters. You could do the same with boiled potato water if you are wondering ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Yep. Remember when tomatoes used to come in a palette of colours? We used to grow several different colours and styles every summer. The heirlooms seem to be the most diverse. I still like lots of colour.
