Corn Growth Journal 2013

And...we're back!!

We're going to try this again, hopefully with more success and more rain this year. Last year at this time (well, Joe will tell you it was a little earlier, but details, details...), we decided to document the growth of our corn in relationship with our sweet, also ever growing kids. This year, we're going to try it again, and we'll hope to not be so darned depressed by the end of the summer. I am getting nauseous just thinking about the drought...

So, on to happier things: pictures of CUTE KIDS!!

The birthday boy!
Week #1

Each week we'll be sharing pictures of this particular field, south of our house (last year's was north, so here's to a new location, friends!). Joe just finished planting this field yesterday afternoon. So today is that day that we all feel relief. We're all happy that this is in the ground. Corn is a time sensitive plant, it needs a certain amount of growing degree (heat) units in order for it to achieve maturity. If you miss that window, you're out of luck, and by the grace of God, we finished under the wire. 


So, as I posted before, we were able to breath a sigh of relief because of the corn being planted and enjoyed cake and ice cream and goofy tractor pictures with the kids today.

Here's to another year of ups and downs, I'm sure, but here's to the promise of more ups.
Stairsteps on the steps...
