Mid-afternoon Thursday Shawn Geffert looked over 80 acres of corn, some harvested but most still standing. He wrenched the husk from an ear, broke it in two, plucked a kernel and plopped it in his mouth.
A few chews later he declared the corn still a bit too moist to cut.
Geffert then grinned. Of course, munching a few kernels of corn wasnt exactly scientific, but if its a little soft I know its probably a little too moist, he said.
