Corn! Finally, corn! I’d begun to wonder whether my stalks would produce ears this season. The plants are as tall as I am and their leaves are full and broad, but frankly they haven’t changed much in the last month or two. These new magenta tassels are the first sign of fruits on the way—three ears’ worth, thus far.
