Developing Brace Roots


Today Jackson and Bill inspected the neighbor’s cornfield that I posted about in May. After they were in the cornfield today, Jackson designed the image below (choosing the colors, using the paintbrush, placing the photos) and determined most of the text to be included. Leave it to a five-year-old to notice that I forgot to include the “th” after the “29”! Maybe he can become my proofreader!

Clicking on the images will enlarge them.

    Over the last few years I’ve noticed these brace roots and wondered if they’re being exposed was a good or bad thing–or how the weather might affect them. I suppose they’ve always been part of the corn plant, but I just never was aware of them.
