My dad, Trywell, with this year's Maize. He is 6' 5" so it's a great sign that it's over his head!

This harvest will be especially good with giant ears of maize. My family is enjoying eating the fresh maize right now, and then will dry the rest of it to save to be ground into maize flour, which forms the basis of our family's staple food Nsima, a corn dish similar in texture to Cream of Wheat.
