Feeding Time.....

Category: Sweet Corn | Posted: Mon Nov 19, 2012 3:11 am

I did this on November 15th and did not had time to get online because 2 of my children were back home for the holidays. It was nice to have them back and would be nicer to have them all back at the same time. My youngest is working in another country so she was not able to be home, missed her alot.

OK let's talk sweet corn ... they are starting to tassel so I guess it's feeding time.


Tassels ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

Frankly I was surprised to find that they are tasseling because they no taller than 4 feet. Are they under nourished?

Checked the stem and found some ears like leaves which I hopr it is growing out. Some of the plants have more than one coming out.


Yummie time!!! ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

All in all I managed to put in about a bucket of compost in and around the plants. The bucket is about 12 liters which I think it is about 3 galllons and I hope keeping my fingers crossed that I will get nice corns soon.

I don't remember if you posted the name/variety of your corn, but 4 ft. tall is good if it is one of the bantam sweet corns.. Yours is looking good.

We live in the middle of corn farms. We had a drought this year and many farmers lost half of their normal yield. It was very sad. It isn't unusual for sweet corn to be short but it is sometimes better if you have several rows for them to properly pollinate and be strong in storms. Good luck with your harvest.
