While doing my rounds this morning and checking for deer damage in the garden beds, I noticed something odd about our sweet corn.
The middle corn block is the one that’s growing the tallest and developing the most tassels.
But there is only one corn cob developing.
Once it sunk in what I was seeing – and not seeing – I walked around through the corn block, looking for developing cobs, and there just aren’t any. Not a sign. Usually, I can at least tell where cobs are going to start growing, but there is nothing.
How very curious.
