2012 Corn Height, 4th of July

This is the 4th set of Independence Day corn photos.  Shepherd is my model this year.  He’s wearing his bike helmet because we were driving the ATV to take these pictures.  Here is 2011, 2010, and 2009.

The corn looks remarkably well considering the lack of rain and heat.  The pastures and yards are all brown.  If the corn tassels soon, and tries to pollinate without rain, yields will be significantly reduced.

The top photo shows corn I planted on May 11th on the rye field.  The bottom photo shows corn I replanted June 3rd.  My next post will tell why I had to replant and what I want to change for next year.
