Man that corn looks good! Unfortunately, the one time I tried growing sweet corn (Peaches and Cream if I remember correctly), I had every raccoon in a 4-county area making a bee-line to my small patch. Did they eat only a few ears? No! They took a bite out of every single ear and then left it there on the stalk! I chopped off the eaten part then cooked and canned the rest. Blasted raccoons. ::grumble grumble grumble::
