What a lousy year for corn.
Every ear is small and deformed. I consulted my husband’s aunt, who has plenty of experience with corn, and she concluded that this summer was just a lousy year for corn (among other things). With more than fifty days of rain, everything suffered. Just about everyone I talk to has a story to tell about short plants, worms, and low yeilds.
It’s easy to commiserate over our small family plots, but what hurts the most is seeing farmers lose everything on account of one bad year.
