Corn - Not Just the Stuff for Popping

(Ida, MI) In this image the corn seedlings look like they are growing in a terrarium. I view cornfields from afar several days a week, and I decided to pull my car over on the highway and see what rows of young corn plants look like up close.

From a distance they look like green lines in the dirt, but up close each corn plant has its own unique appearance.

This, of course, is not news to those who grow the plant once known as maize, but it still impressed me to see so many thousands of tiny corn plants at eye level, many months away from becoming popcorn kernels in shipping boxes.
