Overcoming the Challenges of Growing Corn {Beginner’s Garden Podcast}

· · ·

It took me three seasons to finally attempt growing corn. It only made sense to grow it, since one of our main goals for having a garden is to grow as much of what we normally eat as possible. I wish I could tell you it was easy and all went great. Unfortunately, it didn’t.

But, after I learned from some key mistakes and took simple steps to overcome the challenges, corn is one of the most rewarding crops I grow.

In this episode of the Beginner’s Garden Podcast, my goal is to help YOU skip the mistakes I made and go straight to reaping the benefit of a wonderful corn harvest. I talk about:

  • How much you need to plant for a good harvest.
  • Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and how growing your own corn will help you avoid them.
  • The differences between hybrid and GMO seed.
  • What variety I’ve had the most success with.
  • How to prepare your soil for planting.
  • My biggest challenge and how I overcame it.
  • How to know when it is ready to harvest.
  • Two other problems I’ve had and how I overcame them.
