We've been having corn-on-the-cob from our garden recently, very unusual fo
r mid-June, but we've had a very warm and early spring this year. My wife s
tarted the seeds in the greenhouse, moved the trays to the cold frame to ha
rden, then planted them out in the garden.
She makes a series of small corn beds, about 3' by 10', planted a few weeks
apart, so that we can keep up with them as they ripen.
I tried to grow corn several times before I got diagnosed with
Diabetes (corn is one of the causes) to no avail.
The kernels were infested with earwigs every time I tried.
I remember spraying the kernels with chrysanthemum spray
and having the kernel erupt with earwigs like a
kid's volcano science project.
Death to Earwigs!
This is my first try at growing corn out here in the woods . Raccoons
are about my biggest worry ... I THINK my electric/chicken wire fence
system will discourage them , but only time will tell . It's been
working pretty good for the other SFA's (small furry animals) , even up
to deer and the local bears .
they are frequent visitors here at night. can usually
hear them wandering around and sometimes fighting/f*ing.
will even have them sometimes climbing up the screens on
the patio doors (the young ones playing around/exploring).
often they also raid various bird nests for eggs and
