Other options with the Corn Plots --was Can You Grow Corn inSmall Spaces?


In addition to the wonderful suggestions already posted for growing corn
in that size plot, consider leaving out one corn plant on one of the
southern corners or the plot and planting a vining squash.  Let the
vine run all over the ground beneath the corn.

If anyone wants to grow a 3 sisters plot and include beans, give the
corn a foot or so running head start before planting the beans.
Otherwise you get really short corn which looks as though it's
been overrun by miniature kudzu.

If the corn gets blown down in a storm, stand the corn back up after the
storm and firm the ground just enough to keep the corn standing.
Try not to actually compact the ground.

For people that want as much crop as possible in the corn plots,
you can underplant with lettuce and/or greens.  It helps these
plants to have some shade in the heat of the summer.  And you can often
get a crop longer than you could get otherwise.
