|| Local Corn Grows 35ft. Over Night!|
Story by: Timothy L.|
The few times I checked on them, the stalks seemed to glow a little strangely
in the morning sun even when they were sprouts. They are now bigger than any
cornstalks I have ever seen or heard about.
I admit that I hadn't paid much attention after planting the kernels, it was
a wet summer so there wasn't any watering and weeding is just too much work!
The field sits between woods and swamp and is not particularly close to the
house, but we tossed in some seeds. If the crop ended up becoming food for the
local, plentiful wildlife, I can't say we really minded. We put food, seed
and leftovers out for the critters most of the year anyway.
Having been away for a time on personal business, I returned and took the dog
for a walk to check the field. She started barking, then shyed away as we
neared, her fur standing up in a ridge along her back. Cautiously approaching,
I was stunned to see corn that looked like it could almost have come out of a
"Jack and the Cornstalk" story. Our pine trees are pretty mature, but if the
corn keeps growing they are going to rival them in height. Is it possible
that the plentiful rain was responsible for their gigantic size? Somehow I
doubt it. Some of the stalks are strangely colored, and I have never seen kernels
quite like those on their cobs! I don't think we will eat them, and the
critters seem to have shunned them as well.
