FIRST CORN SILKS OF THE SEASON ON JULY 9TH!
The first corn silks this summer (see photo). The average for the varieties that we grow is about four weeks between first silks and first picking. The sweet corn countdown has begun.
WE SPOTTED TASSELS ON THE FIRST PLANTING OF CORN TODAY, JULY 1st!
Today we spotted the first tassels on the corn. With such a late start to the planting season this year because of all the spring rain, tasseling is about two weeks behind this time last year, so we won't be able to open our produce stand until August, but we'll keep you posted right here and on our Facebook page.
THE FIRST PLANTING OF CORN IS IN THE GROUND!
Today was a wonderful day on the farm! After weeks and weeks of rain, our fields finally dried out enough to get the first planting of sweet corn in the ground! With such a late start to the planting season, we may not be able to open our produce stand until August, but we'll keep you posted right here and on our Facebook page.
OUR CORN IS NON-GMO
We've received inquiries from customers, asking if our super-sweet corn is a GMO variety. Please be assured, our corn is not a GMO variety and we have certification letters from our seed suppliers that none of our delicious super-sweet corn is grown from genetically modified seed. You can enjoy all the Schlechter Farms corn you can eat without worry.
