maize and friends

the sweet corn and the jerusalem artichokes next door are doing pretty well...i imagine the corn would like temperatures a bit warmer ( right there with you coach ) but it is maturing all the same the ear in the second photo is fairly hand span ( third photo ) is a bit over eight inches so that ear is a round a foot long...a good size and we'll see how it ripens over this month ( it should be done before august is )..the rest of the maize isn't slouching along either so we should have some colorful ears soon...particularly if the cross pollinate...mor eon that if we aren't preempted by the squirrels.
