Coconuts And Corn

Photos for American Farmers Wade Martin

and Jeff Parrish 

Coconuts and Corn – Photo One – Photo for American Farmers Wade Martin and Jeff Parish. Walking through the Leyte landscape with my Nikon camera, I stopped and looked at the rows of corn and the coconut tree. In the United States, acres of corn stretch out across the horizon in states like Missouri, Arkansas and Iowa. Actually, Corn is a grain that, according to my old Future Farmers of America manual is grown in ALL 50 states and is the reason that the corn grain is used on the FFA Crest. Once I stood looking at the corn and the coconut tree I wondered if American Farmer Wade Martin, of Abesville, Missouri or American Farmer Jeff Parrish of El Dorado Springs, Missouri, near Nevada, Missouri, would believe their eyes. You can grow “sweet corn” in the Philippines, but, I doubt, Missouri winters and the seasonal tornadoes will allow coconut trees to grow in southwest Missouri. Nikon photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.
