If you're planting seeds of corn, wait until the soil warms put to 60F. If you plant corn too early in the season, the seeds will rot before the weather is warm enough to prompt germination. Corn seeds do not all germinate, so for best results, plant three seeds together. Early in the season sow the seeds 1" deep, about 7" apart. For successive crops, plant seeds at two week intervals. You can thin the plants so they stand about 15" apart. Be sure to plant your corn in blocks rather than rows, to ensure complete pollination.
