Corn Experiment...

Last week I showed you a picture of the corn fields, and a close-up of a corn stalk here...

After a weekend of hot weather after an inch of rain, I wanted to see just how much that corn grew!  Here it is...that same corn field, four days later...

...and that same corn stalk...

The corn has grown so much that the stalk doesn't quite have the same shape that it did in the first picture, so it's a little hard to compare.

This was interesting for me...I never paid such close attention to the corn before!  I've paid more attention to the weeds in my garden...which by the way, have grown a lot too.

I guess I'd better go try to get rid of them, but I think I'll wait until it cools off a little.


  1. I think you will surpass the saying around here, "knee high by 4th of July".

  2. I think so too...it's that high already! :)

  3. Wow,it's grown a lot. I bet you can hear the corn grow if you listen closely. It looks so pretty in neat rows. JB

  4. WOW amazing it is growing so fast. Good luck with the weeds. B

  5. OH gee the weeds!!! Are we ever weed free? I need to be out doing that instead of being on the computer. :)
    I do like it though when it is all clean.
    I love watching your corn grow too. It is amazing to watch it week to week.
    Have a wonderful week!

  6. Amazing what a little rain can do... both good~~with the corn, and bad~~ with the weeds :)

    We had freezing temps over the weekend, and will have to replant some of our garden..ahh. the wonderful weather~~LOL!

    Smiles :)

  7. The rain and hot weather sure made the corn grow a LOT!! By the way, I can't believe it's been a week already since your last corn pictures! Yikes!!

  8. It is amazing how quickly it grows! We just got about an inch of rain, so I'm hoping mine will grow like the weeds too!

  9. wow, your corn looks beautiful! it's so exciting to see things grow so perfectly and beautiful!

  10. The corn looks great-amazing how fast it grew!


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
