Hello everyone,

I asked this in another thread I frequent and they suggested I ask you folks here on Farm Life. :-)

I have a small garden and a patch of field corn in it. The corn has been picked and now I want to let my cornstalks dry so I can tie them into bundles for Autumn decorating in the yard (kind of like sheaves, you know).

Is it easier/better to let them stand in the field til dry or to cut them now and set them aside somewhere to finish drying? Also, do I pull them or cut them? And what is the best thing to cut the stalks with? I have never done this before so I am clueless!

Thanks in advance for all advice :-)
