How many ears of corn on a corn stalk?
When I was growing up, I remember seeing drawings of stalks of corn having many ears going up and down the stalk.
We usually see one to two good ears on a stalk. Many stalks just have one ear.
Bob gets close to the corn growing on our farm. He sees up to two ears of field corn on a stalk.
Too many of my non-farm friends think corn produces 6 good ears per stalk. They are surprised when they grow some corn in their garden and don’t get as many as they expected.
Take this as an eye-opener.
