Holy broomcorn, batman

On a whim (doubtless seduced by some glossy, brightly edited seed catalog on a cold winter’s day) I decided to grow broom corn this year. I thought it would fun to see, and then I could make an old-fashioned broom for the kitchen.

I didn’t know what I was getting into… I thought they’d be more or less like regular corn.

But will you LOOK at these suckers!?!

That short stuff in front of them is the “regular” corn – just a bit taller than me! That broomcorn must be 15 feet tall!

I wonder if the neighbors are expecting me to harvest ears of corn the size of footballs.

    I wonder how much dirt you can sweep away with a 15 ft. Broom! :-)
