We planted corn as an experiment this year, not knowing quite what to expect. Corn likes fertile soil, and, well, I’m essentially gardening in a sandbox.
Looks like incomplete pollination on some of them, but overall I was pleased with how many ears we got from our little planting.
We grew ‘Merit’ corn and got these cute little ears, perfect for a single serving.
Some of these beautiful ears of corn will be boiled, slathered in butter, and sprinkled with salt.
I also plan to take some of these ( the ones that -ahem- were harvested too early) and simmer them in ham stock with some ham chunks, red potatoes, sauteed onions, and make some corn chowder!
Will I grow corn again? Yes!
