CORN
(Zea mays)

SOIL pH 6.0 - Corn and popcorn is best grown in full sun, but make sure it does not shade your other crops when it reaches its full height.  Corn is a heavy feeder, so work plenty of compost into the soil before planting.  Sow after all danger of frost has passed and the soil is quite warm (70-72 degrees F.).   Planting in soil that has not warmed sufficiently will cause the seeds to rot before they will sprout.  Plant 3 seeds, 1  to 1.5 inches deep, every 12 inches.  Rows should be about 24 inches apart.  To insure proper formation of the ears, we suggest at least four rows of corn in the garden.  For smaller gardens, try planting in a 4 foot by 4 foot block.  Divide the block into 16, 1 foot by 1 foot, squares.  Plant 3 to 4 seeds in the middle of each square. Thin to one plant in each 1 foot by 1 foot square.  With this method, you can harvest 16 to 24 ears from a small garden area.  Harvest when the kernels are full  and milky when pinched.  This will occur in 12 to 18 days after the silk first shows.  The corn borer can be somewhat controlled  by the regular spraying of Rotenone.  Remember, corn will cross pollinate readily with other varieties of corn,  resulting in poor quality ears or lack of flavor.
