POTD - Baby Corn

POTD - Baby Corn
©2011 Kristin Corlett

The sign said that this was Truckers Corn.  Not sure why it was called that, but it probably wasn't because it grows as tall as a trucker because these stalks were 8-9 feet tall!  It was fun looking up at the tall tops and seeing all of the little baby corns growing.  I almost want to put a smiley face on that corn and pretend the silk coming from the top was a shaggy hair-do.  When I looked up Truckers corn it said that it was an heirloom variety.  That doesn't surprise me since this corn is growing in a little plot next to the Historical Society Museum house.  I think all of the vegetable plantings were probably heirloom varieties.

Corn picked fresh from the stalk is the best. Right there in the cornfield!
