The pic is of our 2nd planting of Serendipity sweet corn.  The first planting was just a bit smaller due to my water hose didn't reach all of it.  This planting got regular watering during the drought times.  The 4 ears next to the can are a full 8" long, as most is.  Best sweet corn I've ever tasted in my life!  I planted it last year, but before mine came in, Brian (TD&H) came by on his way from his Mom's & gave me some from their garden.  1st time I got a taste of this variety, and I was HOOKED!

Went out right after opening this thread and picked the last 5 bushels.  I was literally dripping with sweat!  2nd shower I've had to take today.  We have a 3rd planting that hasn't even got near tassling stage, but it was real dry when it was planted, and by the time I watered it, I guess bugs ate some seed.  Kinda thin, so likely just eat it as it comes in.

I never got to IN this year so we didn't get our tomatoes, green beans or corn. Well, there is next year.

I've also planted many different yellow/white varieties such as "peaches & Cream" for years, but Serendipity is way better than any to date...bar none!
