Planting & Care
Soil & Water:Plant in well worked, fertile soil in full sun. Corn is a heavy feeder, so add plenty of compost or aged manure to the soil at sowing and then fertilize young plants at 7-8" and again as ears form.
Planting & Growing: Once weather is warm and settled and night temperatures remain securely above 55 °F, plant seeds outdoors. Plant 1" deep and 4-6" apart. Plant in a block of 4 side-by-side rows, each row at least 1 foot apart. Thin seedlings to 1 foot apart once several inches high. Make several sowings 2 or 3 weeks apart until early June.
Harvesting & Storage: Well filled out ears of corn are ready to eat when the silks are very dark brown but not dried out. Test by choosing a plump ear and peeling back the husk slightly. The kernels should be tender and milky when slit. Kernels will hold their sweetness after harvest
