Planting Corn in Backyard Gardens with Shirley Bovshow
Shirley Bovshow teaches us how to grow corn on the cob in our very own backyard. Once the climate's warmed up enough to ensure there's no danger of impending frost and the soil is consistently 60 degrees, it's prime time to plant corn in a location that receives at least eight hours of direct sunlight daily. It's also important to choose an area that gets breezy to help with pollination. Shirley shows us how to properly prepare the soil with compost and organic nitrogen. Then, she explains her method for spacing the stalks using the square foot method. Later, Shirley educates us on the nutritional benefits of eating the corn's tassels.
