Corn grows from the center and the growing point is underground until the plant reaches a certain size, so it can get the leaves frozen and still put up new growth. Not like other plants that grow from the terminal bud.

I don't know how many, if any, of us could get the wonderful growth and yields you do at your elevation and conditions, jal-ut. Beautiful plants!
