Frosted Corn

Back in May I posted some pics of corn that got froze off May 15th. (103 day corn planted April 18th, SCMN)

Here are 4 ears picked from consecutive stalks from the same spot in the field I took those pics.

Back in the day it would be ready for the crib.

There is definately some variability in ear size throughout and we lost some population.

Shelled out the ear on the left and checked moisture = 35%.

As always we'll see what the combine comes up with.

Re: Frosted Corn

Doesn't look like I'll have time this year.  Trying to get a new shed/shop built before harvest.

Hoping that the old barn wood we salvage will pay for the new shed.

Son has already made a dining table out of some of the wood.

I hear people are paying a tidy sum for that stuff. Smiley Happy
