Last weekend I had Hubster pull over so I could get of shot of him in the corn. To confirm that the corn around here is well beyond the "knee-high" height requirement. Many fields got an early start due to our extremely warm spring. Wisconsin just had the driest June on record, however, so all the local corn is looking mighty thirsty. For you city folk who know nothing about corn except how to open a can of it, the look of the stalks in the second image are all spiky-like and reaching for the sky (for rain). If they were happily hydrated, their leaves would be bowing down more, like a water fountain.
So, there is your "fun corn fact" of the day! One of...well, one because I don't foresee sharing too many corn facts...
Here's an outtake of my "model" staying hydrated on the set with what I think was an Oreo shake. He refuses to preform without them.
Happy 4th of July everyone!
