You know you still have about 85 days before the first day of fall then probably no frost until after Oct 1. If you have enough room maybe you can plant more than one variety and have corn for awhile. I'm in central IN. I usually plant until July 15-20ish.

Do you have a green GT mower? The ones with no number. Just GT.

Yes it's a Craftsman not sure of year. Has Kohler Command 18.5 and had a 46" deck. Manual transmission with hi/lo. It's had a few modifications.

Re: Garden 2019

With the ground temps in the 70's, if planted now, if planted right before a nice 1/2" rain, or even you watering it in, you'll likely see it spiking out of the ground in 3-4 days, where it normally takes 7-10 days in cooler soil. I planted some Silver King, approx. 75 day white corn,and Roma II bush beans several years ago on July 1, right before a nice soaking 1/2" rain, and had corn in tassel, and beans blooming in 30 days. Started picking both, 3 weeks later.

Except for cole crops, and a few cool weather vegetables, like peas, etc., other items such as sweet corn, beans, and tomatoes, won't do well until ground temps warm up to in the 70 range. I rarely plant anything here in Central Ohio until Memorial Day, unless we've had an unusually warm Spring. Frost date here is May 15, and we've had 2 killing frost's the 3rd week of May, in the last 4 years.

I'm getting ready to plant Silver King this weekend, good to plant late due to it's good late disease resistance, and a couple others over the next couple weeks or so. Planting beans too.

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.
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.

Check out new watering setup https://youtu.be/86IpAd5flXU
it's good that you watered it and you might want to keep doing it if you have the means and ability to.

The best corn I ever had my father-in-law gave me a couple jugs of 45 nitrogen urea. he said dig a ditch between the rows down the stream small stream of it in the ditch and then buried I was giving corn way to everybody

You do that after it comes up and it's a few inches tall probably go buy urea if you have a farmer friend

You can buy it at Rural King where the stores are available. I buy it every year there. Only like $15-$17 for I think 40 LB bags. They have lawn fertilizer only with no lawn chemicals in it. It is urea like the 33%. The bag has a very small amount of potash and phosphorous in it. You can also take a five gallon bucket to any farm chemical-fertilizer business and they will fill it for you. I think it is 33% as well. $15-$20 range. (You can get any dry fertilizer from them in your bucket). I sprinkler it like salt then work it in the soil a couple times if I have to. Works great. Can hardly grow corn without it. Many tell me they never have any luck with sweet corn and I ask if they put any nitrogen on it and they say no. Some don't even put fertilizer on it. Some I've told are now adding it and grow a great crop. Plants 12-15 inches apart harvest population in 30" to 36" rows have really nice size ears. The sizes just like the descriptions say for each variety. I make plantings that will have around 5-7 dozen over a few days and make periodic plantings all summer.

T. Cruit you should do this to yours if I were still growing corn I would definitely do this. Corn loves nitrogen I don't know any Farmers that don't sidedress their corn with some type of nitrogen. Some use liquid which is I think 80% and has to be buried or will dissipate

Keep an eye on it, and see how far I'm off. If you watered it in, I think you will be pleasantly surprised. I've had soil samples tested on my garden 2 times in the last 6 years, and they say it near perfect on nutrients, although high in phosphorous. That's just from being in a garden space since 1953, and using 12-12-12 as a starter fertilizer for that many years has made an abundance of it. Extension agent says it takes a long time for it to be used up. He said it won't hurt anything, but will grow some great beans, which it does. I do give it a good trickle of triple 12 out of a watering can in the rows. I don't side dress anything, never rally needed to, and have pretty decent results.

You guy's can have my share of rain for another week or so. I finished doing the Florida weave on my caged tomatoes last evening. When doing the bottom run, kneeling down, my knee got wet through the leaf mulch, so there is plenty of moisture there yet.

Going out here in a minute, and do some spraying with BT & Spinosad, to keep the little critters at bay. I'll use some soap mixed in for a surfactant, and maybe keep the Deer from eating on things.

I saw the large doe that has been wreaking havoc on things last evening. I sat down to take a break about dusk, and she literally came running down out of the pines, from the neighbors. She was within 50 feet, and did not see meat first. When she did, she was bobbing her head up and down, trying to figure out "what" I was, I guess. In a loud voice, I asked her, "What are you doing..?" Darned if she didn't take 2 steps closer... I kept talking to her, then finally told her to "GIT..!!" I had to yell at her a half dozen times, before she made like a bleating/squeal noise,and took of back through the pines. I'd imagine she paid another visit, after I fed the horses,and things calmed down. Better go check, and see if there is anything left to spray...

I should probably spray some BT as well and ordered some. Last year my tomatoes got ravaged by tomato hornworms.

I picked off well over a hundred over the summer. Never seen anything like it.

Pulled my first zucchini off yesterday. this guy got a little bigger than I like. surprise me actually I was mowing and saw it.

Re: Garden 2019

I like to slice Zucchini just under 1/4" thick, marinate in Italian dressing for about 20-30 minutes, then grill on medium high heat for approx. 4 minutes on each side. A grilling basket is a big help. 8-10 slices of that, and a nice grilled boneless pork chop, with a decent rub applied, and I'm in hog heaven...

I'm grilling zucchini tonight so I will try it with the dressing, normally I just mix a little olive oil and some season salt and sometimes throw a little BBQ rub on.
