Q.top of corn turning brown
This is our 1st try at corn. Not sure it’s quite ready, but some top of husks are missing, corn turning brown. Can’t see worms or bugs. Perhaps birds? (We just returned from vacation, and know we had a lot of rain as well.) Your help appreciated!

You may also want to check the corn for any
beetles, earwigs or worms, and make sure the ground around the plants is clean and clear of debris.
