Week 2 The corn bed

The corn was sown on 20 December and 18 days later it is up and growing. I sowed seeds into moist soil and there was a lot of rain over Christmas (more than 50 mm), so no irrigation was needed for the first two weeks. Yesterday (day 17) was the first irrigation with washing machine water – 7 mm of water at 700 ppm (parts per million) of salt.
