Lousy Corn Crop
Originally uploaded by mikeysklar
Wendy ripped up our corn from a small east facing bed by the front gate. This was a disappointing round of corn. It looks like we had a number of issues which gave us a small harvest of only about off the corn.
- insect issues, mostly ants had taken over that bed
- some sort of fungus was present on about a 1/3 of the cobs (they were tossed out)
- the plants were short, perhaps low nitrogen or planted too closely
Fortunately corn is a easy transplant and we already have round two in the ground with over 1' of height.
