If you wish to read my all my posts on growing peaches & cream corn, click here.

Eight weeks after planting my corn in the ground, the plants were tall with tassels on top and ears of corn beginning to form further down the plant. This is the most important part of the growing process. The corn needs to pollinate in order to produce full grown ears. Corn pollinates by the wind, which is why it is better to plant it in blocks, instead of rows. I did not anticipate any problems with my crop in regards to this.
