07.06.07 CORN BLOWING
Tassels have begun to appear on the corn plants in the garden. If I look closely I will find silk emerging from the base of the leaves at the corn stalk. Each pollen grain produced on the tassels will hopefully find its way to a single piece of silk. And after that sexual union has occurred, one corn kernel will be produced. I shake the corn tassels vigorously over the silking corn plants hoping to improve my ears of corn!
