Re: How should I hand pollinate sweet corn where there's not a bunch growing together?

Hello Horatio,
You can take a plain-paper bag, and visit all your corn plants that have tassles with lots of pollen. Bend the top of the plant over into the bag and shake pollen into the bag. Repeat. Then take the bag and go visit all the plants that have nice healthy looking silks and shake some of the pollen over them. Try not to do it on a windy day. That's it!
