Category: Tips for growing corn

Sweet corn is an annual warm weather vegetable, easy to grow in any garden during the long, sunny days of summer. Corn needs plenty of space, should be planted in blocks because of wind pollinated, demands fertile well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0 to 6.8, full sun, adequate soil moisture and nutrients. You should plant a corn seeds 1 inch deep and 8 inches apart, and space rows 30 to 36 inches apart two weeks before the last expected frost date. You may choose to fertilize with an organic fertilizer such as well rotted compost or or dehydrated animal manures at planting time, and again 6 weeks later, when the plants start to produce tassels. Corn will retain moisture during hot and dry weather if you are weeding, but don't damage the roots. Harvest when tassels begin to turn chocolate brown and bleeds a light milky sap like skim milk when you squeeze a grain between thumbnail and fingernail.
