Patricia, the Soda Creek Sweet Corn sounds yummy; wish they would reveal the variety they grow.
I'm still looking for extra-early sweet corn. Our growing season is far too short.
Just outside of Williams Lake, a farm grows the absolute best corn we've ever tasted, but they won't tell what kind.
People who drive can pick their own, but our local stores bring it in for purchase too, so we can get it in town. I haven't tasted one better.
I think some new sweet corns are better in Northwestern climate than most of the older types. I read that sweet corn just plain doesnt grow here so didnt try for many years. I have good success with Trinity planted earlier and Bodaceous when the soil is fully warm. I think both are se type. I tried Mirai which is synergistic, too sweet and no corn flavor. I have not tried a sh type.

This is Rick's first attempt at corn so it'll be interesting to see how it does.
Patricia, thanks for the link to
Canadian Early Supersweet Hybrid (SH2)
Randy, planting those poplar, oaks, nuts, fruit, and evergreen trees on your "farm that's been in our family for over 150 years" leaves a legacy all can admire and enjoy.

My new site was never published. Richard or his staff must have known that Daniel's site was still available. Thankfully, Daniel's Godless in the Garden still exists.
Terrific photo, Loam!
I'll try to remember to get some photos when the corn is a bit more progressed.
Rick is waiting for surgery to replace his defib/pacemaker implant & I need my other hip replaced, so the garden may have to take second place soon.
Patricia, thank you for the sweet corn info! I will watch for those. I may have one or two batches left to plant. I plant about 25 seeds every 2 weeks to spread out the harvest.
Here are community garden plots at the Senior Center in my town, Vancouver WA. A lot of theirs are ahead of mine. I think Vancouver warms up earlier than my yard. There must be over a hundred garden plots here
An extremely early ''supersweet'' variety developed for short season areas. Large 8-10" ears of very sweet kernels. Supersweets hold their flavour much longer than other varieties when picked.
