The Turning Point for Our Corn
I always look forward to this point in the process of growing corn, when the plants stretch their necks to the sky and begin to display their tassels. I started my seeds in early May. And while two months may seem like an eternity when growing other veggies, when it comes to my corn, it doesn't feel like a long time at all. I'm sure this has something to do with the fact that a corn seedling resembles nothing more than a tiny blade of grass in its infancy and then goes on to becoming a plant that measures over 7 feet tall two months later. In this way, I consider corn to be a fast growing vegetable.
