Last week I visited Bradford Farm and was totally impressed by their extensive vegetable plots as well as their research areas. They had the most zucchini I have ever seen in my life. And I got to stand in a corn field! I’ve never lived in a rural area, so this was a new and exciting experience for me. I’m not sure if it was field corn or early sweet corn, but it was taller than me. So cool!
