If you have the space for it corn is a great vegetable to plant.  Roasted or grilled corn is great addition to any meal and watching a corn crop ripen is a wonderful sight.  Plus the corn stalks can later be used as compost!

Corn requires rich soil and many people use fertilizer. But, you can have excellent sized corn using compost and composted manure.

When growing corn you have got to be sure the seeds are planted at least 15 inches apart.  Make sure the seeds are well fertilized with compost when they are first planted and again in another two weeks.  You will be able to start enjoying your fresh organic corn after the first silks appear.

People also may not know this but sweet corn has a mild taste whereas traditional corn has a stronger starchy taste that many people prefer.
