Have had trouble getting a decent ear of corn the last few years and I've blamed it on the lack of bees. Well, this year a wild hive has either started up nearby or a neighbor has put in some hives. There is that good "low roar" of honeybees working the corn tassles that I haven't heard in several years. We finally got some rain and the garden is taking off. The fence is 4' for reference, I bet if you stretched the tallest stalks of the Hickory King corn out on the ground it would be 12'.
