zea...carnage and growth

critters have been at the maize...squirrels would seem to be the culprits given the toppled stalks and the damage close to the ground...saving it is impossible...and this is what i had expected when i planted it...the remaining ears will be gone soon enough...lost to squirrels or raccoons with insects cleaning up...there will be decorative stalks for the deck though...from halloween to thanksgiving...the teosinte ( zea mays parvaglumis ) on the other hand has grown to about ten feet at its tallest with multiple tillers on multiple plants making for more of a thicket than a row...still wondering what this will month perhaps signs will begin to show.
