Corn Country

     They grow a lot of corn in Indiana.  Since I grew up there, I always feel obligated to plant corn in my British Columbia garden every year.  What I grows in my garden is a lot different from what they grow in Indiana.  Because BC's growing season is so much shorter, the varieties of corn I grow ends up shorter too.  It is usually 4 to 5 feet (1.2 to 1.5m) in height.  I was amazed to see the corn in Indiana was 9 to 10 feet (2.7 to 3m) high.  The fields of corn around my mother's place look more like cane fields than what I remember the corn fields of my youth to look like.
