Corn in the backyard 2009, week 10

July 26

The ears are maturing nicely and the stalks keep getting taller. The tallest tassels measured 118 inches, which is just shy of ten feet, or as someone once said, " high as an elephant's eye..." Thanks for visiting!


  1. "the corn is as high as an elephants eye; and the little brown maverick is winking her eye" ~ Oklahoma, the musical

  2. I think you're getting your verses mixed up John. I believe it goes: "The corn is as high as an elephant's eye; And it looks like it's climbing right up to the sky"
