21 July 2008 - You are looking at Sweet Corn fields that were planted at different times. To extend the picking season, Farmer Ben staggers the plantings. He waits about 2 weeks between plantings, as that is about how long one planting of corn will remain good to pick. When that field is exhausted of corn, he moves on to the new field of corn.
