Picked the last of the 2017 corn this weekend, 15 cobs that went straight into boiling water and then de-cobbed into 4 freezer bags. Really nice corn again this year but we will probably be changing varieties for 2018. Have been using SC1336 which is a Monsanto-owned variety but not GMO (I know, I know, Monsanto owns many of the worlds plant genetics), and we need to change. Also, germination for this corn is less than expected.
Here are some pics of the clean up. Corn stalks cut and stooked for drying and then shredding in a few weeks. Cleaned up a lot of the flower beds also to be put on the shredding pile. All material gets worked back into soil.
