Planting the sweet corn is a carefully designed plan. It takes both a long time and a short time, and that is not as contradictory as it seems. While the actual act of planting a patch of sweet corn doesn`t take very long at all, planting the entire crop is spaced out over approximately 8 weeks. This stretched out timing is essential to keep the sweet corn fresh. There is a very limited window of opportunity to pick the sweet corn with maximum flavour and texture. We plan one patch to become ready to pick just as the last one is finishing up so we can keep our customers supplied with the freshest corn at all times.
Rest assured that we started planting the sweet corn in early May and are planning on having the corn stand ready by late July….if all goes according to plan!
