I harvested most of my popcorn this week, but there were almost no kernels on the cobs and lots of worms again. I guess it had low pollination. It seemed the bed had richer soil at one end than the other – the corn grew well at one end and much slower at the other. It all matured at different times and I bet this was not good for pollination. Oh well. The worms enjoyed it anyway.
Next year, I will feed the WHOLE bed better. I’m also going to look into parasitic wasps. I asked a local organic farmer how they keep the worms away from corn and that is their trick.
