I couldn't resist posting this picture of a good friend of mine standing in a beautiful field of green. If you're a born and bred Iowan there is almost nothing prettier than a field of corn. It's absolutely amazing how fast it grows and how tall it gets. My friend is about 5 foot 3 inches tall, which gives you some idea of how tall the corn is. Won't be long before heavy ears of corn are hanging and ready to be picked.
