Foodshelf Project 2022 Underway

Transplanting Sweet Corn

The 2022 Foodshelf Project is up and running! We’ve got squash and corn in the ground and here’s a brief video of transplanting corn. Since our farm is organic we don’t use treated seeds. Last year we were hit with seed corn maggot that gobbled up our first planting so we switched to starting plants in a greenhouse then transplanting them as you see here. It’s a lot more work than drilling seed directly into the field, but it’s a way to get a viable crop without resorting to treated seed.

    I’ve never heard of transplanting corn! The Foodshelf Project is a wonderful service you’ve undertaken.
