A little over a month ago, I shared “31 Days of Corn,” a collection of photos taken during the first 31 days after planting corn in the field behind our house. Since then, the corn has grown from 2 feet tall, to nearly 10 feet tall! For this second series of photos, I even had to call in a tall, dark, and handsome model to help demonstrate how tall it really is. For a few weeks it felt like nothing was happening, but now we have tassels and ears on each plant. Check out the photos below for the second installment of our corn’s journey from seed to feed! (Ugh! Kicking myself for not using that as a title in the first place! Come on, creative brain, get it together!)
We are about halfway through the corn’s journey from seed to harvest, but there are still many more changes yet to come. As pig farmers, we will use a majority of this corn to feed our animals, but there are so many uses for field corn. Do you know what products contain corn? Leave your guesses in the comments below!
