Good to hear, Pam! I have a lot of silks showing on mine, too. One stalk actually looks like it may have been pollinated pretty well already (silks a little curled and light brown at the end). Keep me posted and I will be sure to post more pictures if I see any more action ;)

I can happily report that removing all those big fat worms did the trick! All the stalks have survived, although some of the tassles are a little the worse for wear! I now have small ears with a little bit of silk showing and the tassles are raining down some pollen on them quite nicely. With all this wind, I hope I get some good pollination, and not just pollen obliteration!!

Oh gosh, I will have to watch out for them! This is my first time growing corn so I love to hear about others' experiences. Hopefully I will have some success!

Your corn looks great! Right before mine got to this stage, the earworms moved in. I peeled back the leaves and plucked a big, fat worm out of each stalk. Some stalks had more damage than others. I fed all the worms to the chickens - they loved them!! I'm hoping at least one or two stalks will survive.
