Apollo11 Launch

Yeas I know 40 years and a week late.
I can't think of many other indistinguishable sounds like that of the Rocket Flames.

Corn growth

I planted a couple of seed packets in the back yard the first of April.
This grouping is from one seed packet. ( about 100 seeds)
About half of the seeds grew up to be plants large enough to produce ears of corn, and about half of those look like they will produce ears large enough to eat.
I picked one ear on July 4th in order to see how it was doing.
It was small, but otherwise perfect. The taste was great.
I couldn't find a gif creator online that would work for me with more than a few frames.
Next year, I'll plant more.
