Re: Garden 2019

Is anyone having problems with untreated corn seeds not sprouting? The seeds I got the last several years was yellow and not the usual pink which I always thought the pink was treated, I'm beginning to think that might be my problem.

Yes, pink is treated. Of course you need to make sure it's a variety of corn you can plant early with pretty good cold soil emergence. If it's not treated and growing conditions aren't to good untreated seed doesn't do to well at all. Hard to get it to come up. I never have much luck with untreated seeds of anything. I always get treated seed if possible. I usually order from a seed company that has treated seed. In general the earlier you plant seeds the harder it is for them to come up especially if it's a little cold and damp. Treated seeds help a lot usually.

Thanks, I do believe that's my problem, after all these years of gardening that last 3 years was the only problem, Also the last 2 years all it did was rain even though I do wait for the soil to warm up.

I buy from Harris Seeds. Fantastic seed company. Sometimes local varieties here and there but treated. When I was a kid my father grew acres of produce including corn and he bought lots of stuff from them. I remember one of the first big time white and yellow corn varieties. It was called Polka Dot.

Re: Garden 2019

Well if the garden ever dries out a little so I can till then I'm going to try to plant the corn again if though it's getting late in the season.

if you have like a 65 day variety it should be okay but anything in the 80s is probably too late

I know what you mean. Terrible year with all the rain. It hasn't stopped raining here since about the second week of last November. Bet we've had 55-60 inches since then. We can plant sweet corn up to mid-July here in central Indiana. Usually plant about a 75 to 80 day variety last here. It matures in about 60-65 days in normal weather. We get Stewart's Wilt bad in late plantings. We have to make sure we plant a fairly resistant variety.

65 day corn will tassel out knee high here with all the heat that time of year. Growing degree days go up quickly in the heat. It's just the opposite here. We have to plant a 75 to 80 day variety. It mature in 60-65 days here in central Indiana and have normal growth. The heat cuts the growing time and maturity time way down here.

I'm not planting a garden again this year. Not enough time and only one kid in the house now so it would all lay on me. Plus with all the dang rain we have had I have mud for dirt, added to we had frost in May this year. I made the mistake of planing the first week in April one year and lost everything that was planted.

Now for a story for those that make Salsa.
The plumber on the job site I'm on (Calvin) told me this. His neighbor last year asked if would like tomatoes since he grows more than he can use. BUT He told Calvin they had a spicy "zing" to them and didn't know why. Calvin asked to go take a look at his garden. What he found was that the guy had planted one tomato plant, one jalapeno plant, one tomato plant, one Cheyenne pepper plant, one tomato plant and so on.......... So there was some kind of pepper plant between each tomato plant. All the tomatoes turned out "spicy" That's good for salsa but not for a salad.

That's really interesting. May have to try planting like that.

I'll go out on times like this, which I'm doing now, mark off where the rows will be and use a dull knife to make a little slot in the ground and plant the seeds. Any crop as well as sweet corn. Fill the slots in with bagged dirt or keep a little regular garden dirt on hand in a buck and use it. To wet to till but walk, crawl over the ground. (I'm not talking about doing this if you are going to sink up to your knees). Then I'll spray over the ground with Roundup if needed or just spot spray before it comes up. I'm not an organic gardener. The weeds are gone and the crop comes up like normal. Then tend the crop like always.

Just replanted corn today. Bought the 65 day variety. My wife had planted 80 day before but only 10-12 came up.
Right after replant I watered it. Really hoping for 3 rows of sweet corn. FYI in central IL.

Maybe it will work out. What is the name of the variety?

It's "Early Sunglow", probably should have read through this thread again before switched seed. I don't want it to tassel at a foot tall. The area is partially shaded if that helps.
