Sybil, I'd say go for it! AsSybil, I'd say go for it! As mine is just starting to silk and will likely harvest in less than 2 weeks, the summer has barely begun! As always, keep the soil loose, plant in blocks'ish (mine is 8 rows of 14 ears each) where you have good ventilation, and mulch after germination. Following a tip from old NC farmers, I plant mine 2 to a hole, 18"apart and rows spaced at 36". I DO NOT THIN! Our garden was prepped with rabbit manure, then I side-dressed with 10-10-10 ONCE. Our corn is over 7' tall, with three ears on each.Good Luck.
