I'm still diggin' this getting off at 5:00. This evening I had plenty of daylight to plant the corn I wrapped in wet paper towels this morning. I put in 3 squares of Country Gentleman and 2 squares of Hopi Pink. I already have three different varieties of corn planted in the other squares - Hickory King, True Gold, and Stowell's Evergreen . I'm trying to decide what sweet corn I like best hence the different varieties of corn. Hopi Pink is used for making corn meal, and I'm interested to see how it turns out. I haven't decided if I'm going to try to make corn meal or use it as a decorative corn. I plan on planting a couple more types of corn later on this season - Dakota Popping and Rainbow Sweet Inca. I think the nieces and nephews will like the popping corn.
In addition to planting new corn, I also thinned out my other corn. I really hate thinning, but it is a necessary evil.
