Most of mine was tiny also....maybe not quite that "slim"... but it did not affect the flavor.

Nice spoon. Corn--not so much. My sister told me yesterday, that she saw something on RFD TV about this. Something about because of the cooler temps hanging around, the corn "thought" it was late season, which makes for smaller ears. Didn't make much sense to me, but she said they said it was a common problem this year. Wish I had seen it, but I don't get all those type tv stations.

Gotcha my row crop corn seems to be normal so far I will report back on that... but I will tell you this that corn was super sweet and good. I picked the rest of it yesterday had alot worms in some today I plan on spraying the silk with liquid 7 and see if it helps. We planted 2 rows same day different variety one side is tall other super short. I already cut the short row in which ears were ready and fed stalks to cattle. I would like to have seen that show as well.
