Corn, Golden Bantam (Zea mays), packet of 100 seeds, organic
Family: Grass (Poaceae)
Annual. 80 days to maturity. Standard open pollinated sweetcorn on stocky plants that produce 2 slender ears per plant, each bursting with 8 rows of broad, golden kernals. Excellent old-fashioned sweet corn flavor. Can be planted in up to three successions for ongoing supply of excellent fresh corn for the table. Corn prefers rich soil and full sun. Moderate water. Plant 1/2 inch deep and thin to 10 inches apart. Side dress with chicken manure after the plants attain 6 inches or so. Cultivate often to soften soil around plants and push the soil up around the stalks as they grow, to improve resistance to wind. After the plants reach knee high, you can cultivate and weed them one more time and then scatter crimson clover seed under them. This will cover the soil, feed the corn with nitrogen, and make it so you don’t have to weed again, all the way through to harvest.
