Last week #1 and I decided to take pictures in the corn field. The corn is about two weeks ahead in it's growth. Normally at this time, it's only about knee high (by the 4th of July).
Kimmy K posted some corn stories last week the day after we took these pictures. Her remembrances of corn fields are almost identical to mine. We spent many hours as children playing in the corn fields. I remember crawling on my hands and knees between the rows when the corn was only a foot high, while playing hide and go seek. When the corn got taller, we would run down the rows, ears of corn slapping you in the side of your head, while your younger sister and you played tag.
When the weather stays above 70 degrees at night, the corn continues to grow. If you sit in the field, you can actually hear it growing. It snaps and pops as the cells expand. It's quite an experience.
I'm so glad that even though I live in the city, I'm still able to keep that part of me that is a country girl and share the experience with my children.
