July 26, 2009 :: Urban Corn

I've apparently broken some cardinal law of nature that says that you cannot grow good-producing corn in a less than 10'x10' plot, and certainly not in an urban area where pigeons and squirrels and theiving neighbors will surely decimate your crop yield.

The stats: 5' or so by 6' or so of Silver Queen corn, planted in wonky rows, staggered in three plantings, has so far, yielded 5 huge ears of corn, and there's 20 more on the stalks ripening. Locality: Fulton County, City of Atlanta, the double-whammy of property tax brackets in Atlanta.
