Knee high by the fourth of July... well the potatoes were! Potatoes and popcorn getting too crowded. Putting the corn between the rows of potatoes was better than putting them adjacent to the rows of potatoes. I tried three different methods of planting the corn. Direct seed, bare root, and small transplant. I see no significant difference in the performance. I think if they can be fertigated by overhead water then bare root might be the easiest and would be successful, even if some of the roots get broken. The extra head start of using transplants helps with slugs, rabbits, etc. Kale could be transplanted too but thats probably more work than needed because it could just be sown directly. It sprouts just as well as the weeds and in a cool wet years it might grow faster than the corn.
