corn

by grace on July 28, 2017

as i ran between the corn rows at the end of may, i thought it’d be interesting to take pictures of it as it grew.

corn grows mighty fast around here.

may 25th:

June 2nd, just eight days later:

June 8th, just six days after that!

June 17th, a mere nine days later:

June 24th, one more week, and the corn was already quite high:

three weeks later, july 16th, and now there was corn growing on the cornstalks, which now had tassles, and the stalks reached way over my head.

i pulled apart an ear of corn, and the kernels weren’t fully ripened, but last sunday i tried another ear, and they looked ready to eat by then.

not that anybody is eating any of it – i think it’s used for the many other, non corn-on-the-cob uses that they use corn for.

i’ll take more pictures later in the summer, as the corn starts to dry.  that process will take a lot longer than the two months it took for the corn to turn into corn on the stalks.

and that’s about all the excitement around here.

ok then,

mrs. almost the end of july hughes.
