Ed's Special Advice
To conserve space and for the best pollination, plant in blocks made up of short rows, thinned to 8 to 12 inches apart in all directions. Fertilize and cultivate soil prior to planting. To preserve best flavor and tenderness. Pick corn just a few minutes before use: Sweet corn benefits from rich soil, side dress with fertilizer just before tassels appear and water deeply.
