The Big Foot Maize...




Imagine wandering through the latest maize at 


with my cousins





on a beautiful fall day...



We went on Monday, because it is less crowded. Visited with the critters, browsed the market & the gift shop, and ate burgers from their home grown beef.

The Maize is huge 7+ acres, and the corn is high.

We told stories of our dads (our dads were brothers) and their many misadventures when we were kids, as we navigated! We laughed, and walked, and laughed some more. We only got turned around a few times, and managed to get through the whole thing traveling 5+ miles in about an hour an a half. Surely a record for three ol ladies.

  1. Amazing! Both the maize and your time! What a great adventure. Wishing I had family closer that would do something like this with me.

    1. It is very tall corn. There were a few cobs with the husks removed, I think by people that didn't realize it is field corn and not sweet corn...

  10. I've never walked a corn maze -- but it looks like wonderful fun! I'd be afraid of getting lost inside that thing; it's a big one! I presume they send someone through at the end of the day to make sure no one's still stuck inside with no way to get out!

    1. It is lots of fun. They probably do a drone search if not all that enter, exit.

    2. See how out of touch I am? I never thought of doing a drone search.

    3. LOL, pretty sure they could find someone without one...

  11. The field across the street from me to the west is owned by a farmer with AGCO combines, which have CAT engines. The farmer across the street to the south had Deere. Soon, the air will be filled with the sound of CAT and Deere diesels! I love watching combining operations, and the smell of harvested cornfields!

    1. One of the things I have missed here is the sound of harvesters and bank outs this time of year.
