Corny

My family love-love-loves corn on the cob. I realized with my late planting (June 3rd) that I probably would not be getting any from our first garden. I came to terms with this and I planted it anyway.
Take that Mother Nature!

Well I can officially say that I have corn! 
I will not be bragging about the size of the corn, but I think they are beautiful.
 

I know I really shouldn't count it out yet though, we still have a month left of warm(ish) weather. My biggest concern is the night, already getting chilly around 9:00. I will expect frost by mid to late September, so we'll just have to wait and see what these little guys do. If everything goes perfectly we would have 20-25 ears of corn. Perfect amount for my family of 3!
