The corn walk




Lots of corn sweetcorn being grown around us. It certainly must take a lot out of the soil

Lovely walk on the non towpath side up towards Woodend lock

Hi Nev,
Corn is a very interesting plant. It has been extremely genetically engineered thorugh its long association with humans--away from the hardy characteristics of its wild ancestor Teosinte. Modern corn seed would rot in the ground without humans to plant it properly, such is its dependecny on us.

Hi there,

Now you have gone and done it! The tourists that use the towpath side will migrate to this side now and no doubt discover its secrets. If the number of Fradley towpath tourists increases much more we will be forced to curtail our dog walking until after dark!

Cheers.

Oops sorry, I can't imagine this blog gets that coverage, plus you have to know where to look to get access.

One of the benefits of Fradley is it will calm down after the school holidays and get back to a degree of peace and tranquility....

Take care
