This is my third year to grow corn in my coastal garden. For twenty years I thought my garden was too small and the weather too cool. Then I saw corn growing (and yielding) 30 feet from water’s edge. I knew I could grow corn.
Check my post Growing Corn in A Small Garden for details.
For corn to have nice full ears like these (‘Sugar Pearl’ from last summer) you need good pollination–good corn sex.
So, if you thought your garden was too small, but have a 4x4 block, give corn a try.
