Back in June, I joined in with The Blind Pig and The Acorn's corn experiment. Tipper wanted to find out if corn planted on good planting days turned out better than corn planted on bad planting days. Tipper and a few of the others had problems with their tests, so they weren't able to finish them. I don't know who else was able to finish their test, but I wanted to share my results.
The corn I planted on the good days did end up being taller than the bad day corn. It was probably 18 inches or so taller. In the picture above, the good corn is on the right side. That was the biggest difference. Both produced corn, however some evil critters ate more of it than we did! We probably ended up with about 6 good ears that were edible. There were maybe a couple more ears on the good side. I don't think that's enough to decide if the planting day made a difference or not with ear production.
It was fun participating in this little experiment with Tipper! Maybe next year I can figure out how to keep all the creepy crawlies away from my garden.
