The second crop from my garden was going to be corn. However this is the sum total of the ears we got.

Most of them are only partially filled with corn kernels.

This is the best of the lot.

I threw away a lot that looked like this.

I noticed that when I was picking them there were lots of earwigs in the tops and the silks looked like they had been eaten before the corn for fertilized. Can anyone who is a better gardener confirm this?
