Let that corn get to about V6 before you let the winged warriors in there... Or they'll eat the corn also...Ozark Lady wrote:Okay, opinion poll: Sort of, not really.
I have raised beds: 4'x8' and I am opening up some new soil... not rich with humus, no mulch or compost, but this could easily be hills.
I do not own a tiller, nor a tractor, so tilling and plowing is not an option.
I could easily go lasagna here, lots of weeds, manure, etc. Or I could dig hills and simply side dress it with manure.
Hubby wants to buy a tiller, I say no... I remember the advice to throw away the tiller... since we don't own one... we don't need to toss it.
I am also considering letting the ducks and geese weed the corn.. good or bad idea?
As I said before... Do some research on hill dropping and check rowing for planting corn. More or less the planter (mechanical or by hand) would drop 3 or 4 seeds on a hill at given intervals.. usually 42 inches X by Y
