This is my first year trying to grow corn. I only planted a 4x4 bed. I have been met with some challenges. I did not get full pollination on the ears that are ripe. This I'm sure is due to the small planting. I seem to have a pest problem but not on all of the crop. I will need to find an organic way to treat this issue. The rewards, now I know I can grow corn and I was able to harvested three ears of corn this morning and they were delish!
