Corn in the backyard 2013, weeks 5, 6, and 7

 June 23

 Height = 26 inches

 June 30

 Height = 39 inches

 July 7

Height = 64 inches.

The last three weeks have seen a lot of growth in the backyard, as our view is now officially obscured and the corn is over twice as tall as it was two weeks ago!  It may come as no surprise that we've experienced more growing degree days in the past three weeks than the historical average.  Still no sign of tassels or ear development, but we'll keep our eyes open for that in the weeks ahead.  Thanks for visiting!


  1. Wow, looks like a really healthy crop this year!


  2. Thanks Victoria. Here's hoping the ears and kernels do as well as the plant so far!
