Boom to the sky, Bullseye

The Boomchickapop popcorn seeds from Angie's Popcorn that I planted back on June 1 are finally starting to produce some corn! The plants have been growing and growing, but there was no sign of actual corn until a little over a week ago.

Since this is my first foray into not just Growing Some Boom, but growing corn altogether, so this is quite exciting. They've come a long way since I last posted June 30, when they were not quite knee high. I'll post again when I'm ready to harvest!
