Sweet corn is not a great crop for the home garden. It takes up a lot of space and is a hungry feeder. A windstorm can blow it down. Its season is short. And then there are the raccoons, which always know just when the corn is perfectly sweet and tender and show up for dinner. Only such extreme measures as setting traps, an electric fence or even a very tall fence roofed like a cage will ensure protection. Last year we lost most of our crop to raccoons.

Some lessons just aren’t learnable until you dig in, plant, weed, water, grow and harvest.
