Corn in the backyard, 2014 -- week 1

May 11

You can barely see the rows of plants in the photo at top, as they are only 3 inches tall, but then they only just emerged a few days before these pictures.  Even though the winter was colder than typical, April's daily temperatures averaged over two degrees above the historical average.  Over the week before this photo was taken, we were blessed with twice as many growing degree days as we typically get for this time of year, so it probably shouldn't have been surprising to see the corn pop up.

As always, we'll monitor the growth in the backyard so you won't miss any of the excitement!
