I am glad I planted Ambrosia corn this year for several reasons, it tastes much better than Silver Queen, it is a 72 day crop not 95 days, 72 day crop makes it ready to harvest before rains stop and before we start having 100 degrees temperatures. We already ate 13 ears of corn in the past 2 days. We had a garden visitor late last night that ate 6 ears so today all that is ripe had to be harvested. There are 86 ears in the 2 buckets. This is a total of 105 ears of corn for 1st harvest. Second crop will be ready to harvest in 2 more weeks. This was 5 rows of corn, 20 foot long rows, 36" between rows, seeds about 7" to 8" apart. Ambrosia is a smaller corn that Silver Queen and makes 1 ear per stalk like Silver Queen. 200 ears of corn will be a perfect amount for us. Alice made a garden stew for dinner with, corn, green beans, tomatoes, potatoes, herbs, wow nothing better than fresh garden vegetables.
Chocolate Cake & excellent Red Wine, it just doesn't get much better than this. Red Wine is a good bed time sleeping medicine.
