Volunteer Ear

We've gotten used to (and look forward to) the cheerful site of summer sunflowers popping up around our bird feeder. This year we had not just sunflowers but a couple leggy stalks of corn. I didn't even suspect until I went to pull the brown sunflowers (after the wild birds had eaten all the seeds) that corn was growing right under our noses, and -- not just stalks -- one lonely, feral ear of corn. A volunteer ear and a special treat for our silly little chickens.
