We planted our garden thisWe planted our garden this year on memorial day ( we are in central NY state near albany). All purchased plants. This is our first year attempting corn (the kids wanted to plant like indians) so we have 1 squash plant in the center of a square of 4 bean plants about 9 to 12 inches away from the squash and then the corn farthest out a few inches from the beans. I am noticing after all this time that the corn is now 3 to 4 feet tall and a few are starting to tassle (I think - it looks like seeds popping from the top) no ears yet though. Is this correct? Also, the sqaush plants are not doing as well as the ones we planted elsewhere by themselves. The beans are about as high as the corn and are producing already. I have probably 15 to 20 beans per plant so far. Can I start picking the beans or should I wait until they are all finished growing? (1st time for beans also)
