Tassels

17 Jul

We were gone for a couple days and when I got back to the farm it looked like it had exploded! The hot weather has the corn growing so fast you can almost hear it. And as I drove home from hoeing the garden I saw a few tassels peeping out.

The corn tassels are what pollinate the “silks” on the corn cobs that create the kernels. If you want to know more, here is a funny (but accurate) post about how corn pollination works from Dairy Carrie: http://dairycarrie.com/2013/07/17/corn-sex-with-photos/.

Our corn is raised for livestock feed to help keep the world supplied with delicious, nutritious beef!

God Bless You & American Agriculture,

Liz

[The Lord will create] a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain. – Isaiah 4:6
