Where Corn Don't Grow

If Jenny looks a little glum, it could be because she is contemplating this season's somewhat meager corn crop. Of everything that we grew in the garden this "summer," the corn probably suffered the most from the cool temperatures and lack of sunshine (conversely, the potatoes, cabbage and salad greens all had banner years).  As you can see in the photo, each stalk has struggled to produce (on average) a single, small ear of corn.  But for what it lacks it size, it makes up in delicious sweetness.
