The time of growth is coming to an end
You can see all the brown leaves starting to show in the fields now, the tassles are going from white to yellow, to gold
Soon, very soon, maybe right after this irrigation
On both of the cornfields, we will be entering the waiting stage.
See all the golden dry leaves
The husks losing the green (they go from green to reddish-purple) then to gold
After which they fall over, the stem too dry to hold up the cob anymore
The kernels are almost all dented. (we want them to ALL be dented)
If not this irrigation, then the next.
Winding down now
The corn growing season is coming to an end.
