Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • corn seeds
  • compost
  • organic fertilizer
  • chicken wire (optional)
  • netting (optional)

Of course you will have to prepare the area you want to grow your corn and measure your squares. As far as seed planting is concerned it is recommended you plant four seeds per square for best yields. Keep an eye out for various pests that attack corn such as stink bugs.

Make sure you use good organic compost and fetilizer. Keep your corn well watered until the ears are ready for harvesting. If you find your corn leaning or falling over, netting can be used to keep the stalks upright. A chicken wire cage can be built around the garden, for protection from other animals like your goats.
