  1. Hi! I’ve been reading your website for a long time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Houston Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the fantastic job!

    The official spacing for corn is one per square, but my friend (who has lots of success) plants 2 in one square, 1 in the next. So a 3×6 would have 5, 4, 5, 4, 5, 4 = 27 seeds. With a square foot garden, you really need to support your corn if you live in an area with wind.

    I had the same issue with the wind blowing my corn. I planted a 3’x3′ box as 3 rows. I did plant about 9 per row, but did not have any luck getting a harvest this year. I’m planning my 2012 garden now and have saved 36 squares (3′ x 12′) for corn. From your article you state 1 seed per square. Did that really work? That seems like a lot of space for one corn. Any suggestions appreciated! Dreaming of butter on my chin too!
