|This is my first garden and I do not know what it means when it says to Thin. My corn is about 2" high and about 5 to 6 inches apart. What do I do?

|Corn is a heavy feeder and need lots of moisture. If the plants are too close together they will compete with one another. For most productive growth, thin your corn plants 6"-10" apart. This will provide elbow room for them to grow, and enough root space so they're not fighting one another for food and moisture.
