Heirloom field corn

Our heirloom open-pollinated field corn stands high above us on this July day. This fall, we'll harvest the ears and let them dry in our corn crib. We will then shell them and grind them into a delicious old-timey tasting cornmeal.

Oh my goodness!! What in the world are you feeding that corn?? Man, I'm so jealous. We didn't get a single ear of corn off of our crop. The bugs got to them all first!

And I thought mine was tall at about 7-8 feet! Oh my, your corn is unbelievable!
