How's the weeds? I know if I don't keep up with the weeds in my sweet corn, I get the stunted stalks and small ears. Sometimes no ears.

After planting did it go through some trauma? Drought, cold or some other shock. I would think corn being a grass could be affected like a hay field and do an early bolt due to the environmental conditions.

Then there is the moon phase thing but I won't go into that.

How'd your grass do? Did a lot of it go to seed before it built any mass?

In some areas yes more than others.

Our corn did not suffer any trauma. My husband planted another couple of rows about a month after the first planting. It is slightly taller (about 6 inches), so it is about 3 1/2 feet tall. It made some big ears though. They are over 12 inches husked and it is oh so sweet!

Yes, mine did....but I say it's because of the 3/10's of an inch of rain it got in 6 weeks.....gave it enough energy to go to seed. Pastures are looking better now that we have gotten SOME rain....and actually, after all the cold spells and dry start, the field corn in our area looks to be the best I've seen in 10-15 years. Been getting some light showers in Taylor since about 6 am this morning. Pretty much icing on the cake for them.

That is how ours looked too. It is really producing and I am looking at another day of processing corn.
