Hi! Me again! Had a little bit of rain come through and it brought the wind with it. My corn is between 4 and 6 inches high, all looking pretty healthy. Most of my buddies have been blown sideways, as in paralell to the ground. Is now a good time to thin them out and can I replant my little fellas without harming them with the hope of some saved yeild? I sowed two or three seeds in each planting hole.

Plt3145, yes you should thin out your corn plants as they like room around the roots, but not too far apart, I would say if you transplant now, your little ones should be OK, try to plant them kind of zigzag as they dont pollinate well by insects, they blow in the wind and get pollinated by the pollen brushing against the next plant,or airborn pollination, it should tell you the distance on the packet depending on the type and expected hight of the plants.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
