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.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we can't eat money. Cree proverb

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

If there ever was a year you could hear it grow it would be this year up here..
Look at three inch corn, walk around the house and come back to look at four inch corn.

I love the sound you here walking through standing corn but have no love for what it can do your hand and arms if you have a short sleeve shirt on. Blinking
