corn after all
6 small ears. One is a red head. It's pretty amazing how the little cobs emerge so suddenly.
At a great used book store in Dumbo, P.S. Bookshop, I came across "How to Tell Corn Fairies If You See 'em" by Carl Sandburg. It states "All corn fairies wear overalls. They work hard, the corn fairies, and they are proud. The reason they are proud is because they work so hard. And the reason they work so hard is because they have overalls."
Now I think it is too hot for overalls. Maybe the fairies can work in loinclothes and relax a little bit.
