Because it’s been well over a week since my last entry, I decided to post a quick update to say not too much has been going on. About the biggest news with me is that I finally have a handful of ears of corn growing in my garden and, barring any unforeseen circumstances, should have fully developed ears of corn in a couple of weeks or so. Nearly all of the corn plants reached their full height – about 4.5 feet for the specific variety of corn I am growing – about a week to a week and a half ago, and the tassels that would later develop into corn emerged a little later after that. As it stands right now, the ears are all about 4 to 6 inches large, but growing at a rapid pace each day. Here are some pictures:

And the other news is that I will be leaving later this morning, at 7:00 or so, for a weeklong vacation. If you can guess where it is that I’ll be heading to based on the picture I’m about to post, I’ll give you free membership to my blog for one year. So, here goes:

It’s not too hard to figure out. Right?
