I’ve never planted corn before because I never wanted to give up valuable garden space — and you need a lot of space to grow corn. It needs adjacent rows of corn to be able to pollinate, and we always had good corn from the local farm market — so it wasn’t a priority. But since Chris tilled a second garden for me this year — and he wanted to grow corn, I relinquished a small part of the garden. We planted a square area about 6 rows deep and 12 feet long. I don’t know where that saying came from, which part of the country it pertains to, or whose knees they are talking about — but my corn is NOT knee high — and it’s 4th of July!
Happy 4th of July — maybe by Labor Day we’ll have corn!
