I stopped by the maze to see if the corn was growing -- it was, maybe 3' high? -- and there was Mike in an adjacent field, checking on a crop. We chatted for a bit.
-- They've had about 12 inches of rain this month, but fortunately their land drains pretty well. (On my morning bike ride, I'd seen a lot of fields with standing water.)
-- The guy from Missouri who cuts the maze was supposed to be there today, but Mike said his schedule had gone to hell, thought he was someplace in Maine. Mike thought it likely he'd make it to Sunderland in a few days.
-- The corn was pretty healthy.
-- And, looking at the much bigger picture, the quote of the day, referring to the planet: "We fucked it up, and now we're paying for it."
