Plant corn directly in warm and rich soil 1 or 2 weeks after last frost in spring. Germination is best in soil temperature of at least 60F. At 55F, it will be retarded, and at 50F there is minimal germination.
Plant 1-2" deep and thin to 8-10" apart in rows 30 - 36" apart. Planting 4-row blocks ensures better pollination than 2 long rows. Corn is ready when the silk on the ears is brown. Old timers say to get the barbeque hot as you go out to pick corn. The sooner it is cooked the tastier it is, and roasting it is heavenly!
