Thanks to our friends from 6 ABC who had this interesting story! He is not even a farmer, however Matt Jacovelli, 80, from Deptford Township, New Jersey now has the Guinness World record for growing 29 Ears of corn on a single stalk! . He thinks this happened by accident. Everyday he spreads kernels of corn in his backyard and watches animals eat them. He thinks what happened is a squirrel took one of the kernels from his yard and buried it in his garden... and it just kept growing!
