Corn in the backyard 2013, weeks 8 & 9

July 14

This was the first glimpse I had of the tassels this year, and I had to uncurl the leaves a bit to see this much. After a couple days, the tassels were out on almost all the plants.  Height = 92 inches.

July 21

Lots of changes in just a week! The tassels popped out, and less than a week later the ears are growing by leaps and bounds. We haven't had significant rain in almost two weeks, but the corn doesn't appear to be suffering yet. Height = 102 inches. Changes in the ear and stalk should come pretty quickly now!
