Shoe Peg is a hybrid that produces the baby corn that's found canned, or offered at salad bars. The corn grows on standard sized stalks, but the ears are harvested within 3 to 5 days of the appearance of silks.

Mignonette Strawberry culture isthe same as for any strawberry; full sunshine, well-drained, fairly rich soil, and frequent deep soakings during the growing season. Like any strawberry, Mignonette will set runners that will produce new plants. Remove these runners and plant them with the crown just at, or above soil level, to renew the strawberry bed.
