  1. A Description of Corn

    History: Native to the Americas, corn was one of the "Three Sisters", planted with squash and beans by First Nations people in one of the first companion-plantings. Originally a grain-like plant with tiny heads, it was developed by natural selection over thousands of years to produce the size of ears we are familiar with today. Cultivation: Direct sow seed 1/2 to 1" deep, after the soil has warmed. Sow 5-6 seeds per foot, in rows 30-40" apart. A minimum of 4 rows side by side are needed for best pollination. Companions: beans encourage growth; squash suppresses weeds; peas add nitrogen to the soil.
