commodity report

the bear paw maize in the back yard is beginning to flower...a trip to purchase a sprayer to combat beetles took me by the field behind the big box stores so i thought i'd stop by and see if they had reached that stage, as far as i can see...could it be because they are planted so closely? don't have a definitive opinion about that either...even as closely as they are planted they have begun to develop support roots...hardly necessary it seems...looking across the filed it looks like solid green...a look down the rows says two things....the native plants are rebounding...and there is a lot more bare ground there than a superficial look would reveal...looking for flowers next trip by....ears a a ways off yet...still wondering how many per plant...i am inclined to think just one.
