Anyone Can Blog ~ Commenting Is Hard
This year we planted a garden with Bud The Neighbor ™. I learned something about corn in the process.
How many ears of corn grow on a stalk of corn?
The answer surprised me.
What’s your guess?
My guess is B.
Someone’s talking about corn. Russ’s ears are probably burning.
He might start stalking this thread.
Russ knows his stuff. There’s usually at least a kernel of truth to what he says.
Sometimes he peppers his comments with salty language.
A few more and I can cob off with all the recent comments.
Or I can give up. This has taken the starch right out of me.
*geezer sits back in awe*
I’m betting that Skinbad was wearing his silk shirt when he posted those comments… the shirt with the tassels.

You’re just trying to butter him up.
Skinbad’s the cream of the crop. Outstanding in his field.
He’s like the Green Giant of comment guys.
We have a bushel of good cob-loggers around here.
Now if somebody can just come up with one for “niblets” they’ll steal the whole thread.

(since we’re just killing time until Geoff entertains us with his excellent economic/employment essay.)
When I read about economics it’s usually like being in a maize. But once in awhile things come together in perfect hominy.
^ Just when you think there is nothing left to harvest.
I guessed B because we just pulled up our corn stalks (and fed them to the neighbors cow). Cows go nuts for that stuff. Anyway, It seemed like we got one good ear and then one half-sized one off most of the stalks. The extension service says it depends: http://extension.usu.edu/htm/faq/faq_q=96
So I’m curious what your answer is.
I was gonna say 1 ear because that’s what most of the stalks had. My original guess (before I actually looked) was 4 ears. I did find one stalk that had 2 normal ears.
*cancels call to Guinness*
Our sheep and horses liked the stalks, the dogs not so much.
[…] the answer to the Corn Quiz is: Each stalk of (inferior Idaho) corn usually only produces 1 ear. Occasionally 2 ears will be […]
Funny, I was just working on such a post. It’ll be up shortly.
If seven of your lean ears eat seven of your good ears, I don’t know, buy gold or something.

I guess corn knowledge is a real hot commodity here at IB.
I’m ashamed of all of you. This thread has turned into a cornucopia of silly comments.
I just got the ‘commodity’ joke by Russ.
Damn. All the low hanging fruit/ears have been taken already.
*tries to work in an Ethanol joke*
Now, now, you wouldn’t want to biofuel everyone’s anger.
Actually, the EPA has approved up to a 10% ethanol content in these jokes, but any larger amount may damage engines and emission control systems.
