How can I tell if something is a grass shoot or a corn shoot? I have a shoot in my corn bed that is much bigger than the corn shoots that are coming up, but it looks a lot like them. Its not where I remember planting my corn seed either, its about one inch too close to the center of the square. Should I just let it get bigger?<br><br>
I tried looking for pictures of corn shoots on line and I really can't tell if my particular shoot is corn or grass!

Corn shoots are generally bigger than grass shoots. Some corn shoots are bigger than others. Let it go for a bit, it should get more obvious in a few days. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Was it to protect the seeds from birds? If everything is sprouted, it should be okay to go ahead. If the wire is for deer or rabbits, although I've not had a problem with them bothering my corn (just about everything else, though! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: ), then you may want to let the sprouts get a little established/less tender, but not growing through the wire so much that you can't get it off. Okay, that's clear as day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Good Luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
