Listening to the Corn Grow

People scoff when I talk about listening to the corn grow. But on a hot muggy day in late July, when there's been a good soaking rain the night before, and the air is still, you can crouch between the corn rows (be sure to avoid the banana spiders who string their webs from stalk to stalk waiting to snare any unsuspecting living thing that dares to enter their secret lair) and listen as the leaves begin to unfurl, a rustle here, a squeak there. There's nothing quite like it, and everyone should try it at least once in their lives. Take it from me...

Ah, i've always wanted to run in them.

Listening might be a good start though:)
