Corn in the backyard 2013, week 1

May 26

I first noticed plants poking through the ground last Monday (May 20) after they'd been planted less than a week before. Although everyone is getting a later start this year than last year, rainfall has been good but not overwhelming, and temperatures are warm enough to generate growth in most of the fields around us.  The plant shown above was 4 inches tall when the photo was taken, and we plan to give it plenty of attention this summer.


  1. Spring is not 'officially' underway until the corn post make its debut. :)
