Even tho it takes up plenty of space for the return, we always have to have some corn in the SFG littlejo. Something about picking a few ears and dropping into the boiling water waiting on the stove, that fresh picked flavor. Plus, all of our wild critters like corn so we have to keep it in the fenced part of our garden.@littlejo wrote:I was late planting, for it was raining cats + dogs. It let up a bit and I planted. It didn't rain again for 3 weeks. It finally rained last week just as corn was tasseling. I see ears forming. Usually I have corn on July 4, may be end of month if it gets fertilized. (ignore the weeds, please) Is anyone else doing corn in their SFG?
We planted a couple of different varieties from Burpee. A Sun & Stars Bicolor Hybrid and a Northern Xtra-Sweet. I planted the X-tra Sweet in mid May and we were hit with a 24 degree night on the 29th, so it was replanted on the 2nd of June. That same day I planted the Sun & Stars in another plot. These pics were taken on the 23rd of July.
The X-tra Sweets, on the right, are only going to get to about 5' tall(approaching that now) and most of them have two ears developing.
The Sun & Stars are on the left and some plants have 3 ears already showing and a couple of them are over 6' tall now and should top out at around 7'. I'm expecting to have some corn by mid Aug. from the X-tra and the end of the Aug. for the Sun and Stars
All the Best
