Oregon Reminder

I grew up in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, where summer crops surrounded me in my little town of Coburg. Corn, mint and grass seed were familiar sights as my mom drove me and my brother here and there during our summer break. 

Here in Czech, at least in our little corner, there are usually three crops as well in the summers: canola, wheat and corn.

The canola fields were harvested several months ago; the wheat has just been baled; and the corn is still standing!

This is not sweet corn, but rather corn for feed or for ethanol. Whatever type it is, it is TALL!!!

I meant to bring my little tripod and remote clicker so I could stand in front of it and show HOW tall it is. But I forgot to bring it on this walk!

But's got to be at least 10 feet (3 meters) high! That's some healthy looking corn.

Kaylee isn't interested in the corn at all. But she sure was glad to take her evening walk.

Those are some happy ears flopping around on that little girl as we made our way back home on this beautiful evening that reminded me of my Oregon!
