Skywatch Friday: Through the Corn

by Cynthia

Blue Sky Through the Corn

This is by far the tallest corn I have ever grown! It must stand over 10 feet tall now. I have it growing in a raised bed and I think it is enjoying the layer of bunny fertilizer that lines the bottom of the bed. I plan on harvesting our first few ears this weekend for dinner when everyone will be here. Yum! There is nothing like homegrown corn!

I have read two different opinions on when corn should be harvested. I have always heard to have your pot of water ready to go as you pick and shuck your corn. Recently though I read (somewhere, I always forget where I read these things!) that the sugars in the corn are actually in the corn the most in the morning and so that is when the ears should be picked for the optimum sweetness. Any opinions out there on when is the best time for harvesting corn?
