Just a reminder. Especially in this hot weather. Make sure you experience this corn belt (Midwest) phenomenon: corn growing at night. Again, corn does not grow above a certain temperature so it does it's growing at night. Get out there, stand in a corn field and listen. Something one needs to experience at least once in a lifetime, IMO. Gene

Thanks for bringing that up! I'm trying to envision where I can go to hear it. Trying to avoid major road or folks will think I'm a corn rustler.

If I didn't have to worry about getting eaten alive by skeeters I would but I'm trying a skeeter magnet big time.

Yep. Born and raised on a farm and knew this when I was 6 years old.
And yes - you truly can hear it.
