The wooden structure in the middle of the cornfield is both a landmark and a viewing platform that will become part of a corn maze in the fall. The floor of the platform is a bit over 3 meters high so you can see that the height of the corn is not far off that mark. It seems too early for the corn to be this tall, but staff at our local farmer’s market tell me that new varieties of corn mature more quickly. So quickly in fact that they already had local corn for sale. It doesn’t seem that long ago that you had to wait until late August for corn-on-the-cob. I wonder when that changed?
The signs in the field are also for fall festivities when they will be used as targets for a pumpkin cannon.
Everything is early this year, after a slow start! The corn or grain here, though, is not nearly that high -- it’s all ripening at aboit half the usual height, it’s so weird to see the fields so low.

corn mazes are great fun. Or at least the kids tell me.
I’ve seen too many horror movies to have fyn in a corn maze. (I’ve seen, like, most of one…)
