Backyard Corn in Boulder

This is where it all started for me this year. I wanted to plant a natural screen for my yard and thought corn might be a fun project. When I got to work, I realized the location I had in mind was too shady so I found a sunny spot along the fence. Choosing some corn seed inspired me to get some other food to grow and I was off! Then I discovered that we are all growing food now! Everywhere I look, someone is writing about it, talking about it, doing it.
Anyway, the corn is waist-high now and I'm watering it much more than I anticipated. I don't expect to beat the raccoons out of the ripe ears, but I'm enjoying the sight.
