Corn in the backyard, 2015 -- week 2
The plants sprouted to a height of about 5.5 inches for our second measurement which is about average by our experience, and the green covering of the field was noticeably thicker. We had over 38% more growing degree days than the historical average for the seven days prior to these photos, which extended the warmer-than-normal trend started the week before. After 11 days of growth above ground, the crop appeared to be making good use of the excellent conditions.
