I don't think I'm getting much heat from anything these days. It's just be lolling around in the high 60s and low 70s. Later this week it's supposed to break 80, so I'm hoping for a growth spurt. I think the wall might help once there's actually some heat to work with.DoubleDogFarm wrote:That's quite a jump in 4 days. Are you getting extra heat of the concrete wall?
Have you grown corn before? Are you concerned with the cross pollination?
I've never grown corn before. I don't know whether I should worry about cross-pollination or not. They're both sweet corn, and after lunch I should know whether they're both SE varieties or not. I also planted them 2 weeks apart, but due to their varying maturity dates they might silk at the same time.
According to [url=https://aces.nmsu.edu/pubs//_h/h-223.pdf]this article[/url], super-sweet varieties need to be isolated from SE varieties, but "Isolating sugar enhanced from standard sweet corn varieties is not necessary for pollination."
It doesn't say anything about isolating one SE variety from a different SE variety. Hmmm.
