The fireworks started early!
There’s a saying about corn: “Knee high by the fourth of July.” Ours is between 4-10 feet tall!
You can see the two types of corn in the picture above. The brighter green is sweet corn (“country gentleman”) and the darker, shorter corn in the background is ornamental “Wade’s Giant Indian” flint corn. The flint corn was planted three weeks after the sweet corn so that they won’t tassel at the same time (to avoid cross-pollination).
Baby ready for the festivities!
