I've been envying my neighbor's sweet corn. It's tall and a beautiful green and just looks yummy. All the stalks are the same height and it just looks beautiful. Your typical chemically fertilized corn. My corn is a little different in height, not a deep green, and not incredibly beautiful. Since we've been on vacation it's also very weedy (working on that, promise). Boy, did I wish that corn was mine, chemicals and all.
At least, that was the way things looked YESTERDAY. Last night we had a huge storm with tons of wind. Now my neighbor's corn is a beautiful deep green pile of leaves. My corn however, is still standing. Just goes to show you that even when the grass is greener, that doesn't mean it's better.
