When and Where to Plant: Select sunny location and plant after the last
frost. Soil should be fertilized with vegetable food and cultivated. To insure
good pollination sow seed in blocks of at least 4 rows side by side rather
than one long row. For succession, plant every 3 weeks until early summer.
Care: Cultivate weekly or mulch to control weeds. Fertilize when plants are 12-18”/30-46 cm.
Harvesting: Pick when silks turn brown and ears are firm. Test by piercing a
few kernels with thumbnail. The skin should be tender and the juice should
look “milky”. to get the best tast, pick, cook, and eat the same day.
