Kinsella serves up winning display
Cody Kinsella, 10, of Seneca, said he was surprised he won Best of Show for his display of perfectly-shaped, dense ears of corn at this year’s Corn, Grain and Flower Show at the Grundy County Corn Festival, but he was happy he did.
The Seneca Grade School student is the son of Steve and Kris Kinsella, and to gather the corn, he and his father went out into their fields in rural Grundy County one day, determined to find the 10 best ears for the show. It wasn’t the greatest year for corn crops this summer, with the heat and the drought, but the boys did their job well.
“We’d feel how big around the ear of corn is on the stalk and peel down the husk and see how full it is,” Cody explained.
