Bless that corn, it is still trying to come up. It's providing nourishment for something. Even though I may not do well with corn I have managed to keep my parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, sweet marjorum, and chives.... going for a couple of years plus. I did replant the basil this year.
The owls live up in the big bald cypress to the left of my camp in the first pic. Very tall tree.
