Mine will be at least a month. That drought didn't help any, it's waist high now and I planted it the second week of May.

Umm Excuse me Ed I have grown literally thousands of acres of corn when we had the farm in NYS and that's a way shorter season than Missouri, but I just realized that MI is Michigan, so it depends a lot on where he is climate-wise, which I don't really know.



South west Michigan, 45 miles north of IN and are in zone 5. Go 150 miles north and there is quite a change. Near Lake Michigan is again different due to the influuence of the lake and there is a lot fruit grown but not so much this year due to late frost. Apples, cherries both tart and sweet, peaches, grapes, blueberries and others. Vern

I guess I'd better study up on my state abbreviations, somehow I was thinking MI was Missouri, which of course is way different from Michigan in climate.

Bob, Your knowledge of state abbreviations must fall in that other 4%. :lol:

As if the drought wasn't bad enough, I was checking my corn today and the japanese beetles found it.

I am 5 weeks behind schedule due to my hydraulic problem. But my neighbor Lonnie came over with his Kubota and Land Pride Rototiller 9 days ago and left the field looking like it was brown carpet. The corn is up and 3" tall!!! Yay

Don't feel bad. Usually the deer and coons get most of mine but this year it was birds.

I rarely see a Deer, and have never seen a coon around my garden, but I've never seen an infestation of Beetles like this.

My corn is just now making silk, so it will be a little while yet, though by the tracks I see the coons are also checking it out.

It's funny how coons know just the right time to raid the corn. It wouldnt be so bad if they ate a whole ear before going to the next one.

The deer are chowing down on my tomato plants and I have to put up an electric fence each year to keep the coons out. I have exterminated 13 coons since early May and the neighbor something like 20. That is hardly a dent in their numbers. They are a large carrier of rabies and I have been told it is illegal to transport and release. Can't blame the deer too much, the garden is green. We are so dry our lawn crunches when you walk accross it. TV says for May and June we are short 5 & 1/2 inches of rain less than normal. 30% chance of showers friday. Beetles, generally Bug-Be-Gone takes them, I prefer using it then Sevin once in a while to get any imune bugs. Vern
