TK, actual "Roundup" (glyphosate) doesn't "stay in the soil" and you can plant shortly after using it. However, "Roundup" seems to be used as a generic term for "herbicide" lately, and other types DO "stay in the soil" -- although I'm not sure just how long. You could probably get more info from your county Extension Service. http://www.pickyourown.org/cou...

Uh, didn't know I'd stir up quiet so much discussion regarding the free protein. ;)

But, from my understanding (though I haven't checked on it in probably 30-40 years) the proper amount of meat is 4 ounces or a piece about the size of a single deck of playing cards. Well, that's enough to get started with, anyhoo.... :)

Merry Christmas everybody!!!

Corn question:
I keep reading about growing corn in plots about 2 weeks apart. MY corn, however will only germinate the first planting. Are any of you successful doing this?

I have done it on occasion with no problems. Most time I do an early. second early, main season and late variety as a spring planting which gives me an extended harvest, But if I get a burst of energy, I will do second planting about a month to 6 weeks later. Usually have to irrigate the later crop as triple digit temps are common here in summer. Never had a germination problem if sufficient water was available.
