Today seems to be sunny for a change
- In the last ten days we have seen rain every afternoon. Yesterday winds accompanied the rain and knocked over my entire patch of corn. I'm growing a variety of sweet white corn that grows well in southern Florida. I started it in April and it is just going to tassels. The stalks are almost seven feet tall and to see them all laying flat was a major disappointment.
We gathered the long wood trimmings from the neighborhood coffee plantation and pounded them into the ground next to the plants roots, lifted each 3 plant grouping and tied them to the sticks. I only hope they stay up another 30 days. We haven't had good corn for about 8 months.
Has anyone found a local variety of white corn that taste good and not grown for making tamales or feeding cows?
