    I don't know why

    Maybe the same reason this "St Maries" is called "St Mary's" or "Moscow" is called "Mosko"

    I just do not know these things

    Speaking of Starts, will you be wanting some WW Sweet Starts this year? Just let me know and when they are ready I'll send some to the boonies.

    I put up an inexpensive security camera facing the garden to catch critters and kids. Not one catch which is good. Then I got the idea of making a time lapse film of garden over the season. The camera lost sync a couple times requiring moving camera to re-sync. So the frame moves a couple times. This next year I'm going to try and get closer to the same time of day, so you can see the shadows slowly grow longer, as the sun gets lower in sky through the season up here in Washington. I'll add the rain days this season so plants grow linear.

    Wife is the garden Master this year. It starts with garlic middle left. Herbs are top right. Beans & pea top left. Corn top middle. Potatoes then pumpkins at bottom. Lettuce middle. Some inedible junk not work mentioning. It ends with this years garlic on middle left.

    By context I thought I knew what a start was, but by practicality, I could not imagine transplanting corn plants.

    Meanwhile I raked about 8 inches of snow off my roof a couple days ago.

    I agree. If you can't get by with 60 day corn I wouldn't bother to grow it.

    One of the more liked varieties that I remember being grown around Rochester for a factory is Jubilee and if I remember right is in the mid 80 day range.

    For a farmers market the trick that I see in MN is having a field that can be planted a couple of weeks earlier than the competition so when it ripens earlier it is worth much more.

    As I said before in a smaller home garden in my opinion sweet corn is a waste of space in comparison to what else you can grow.
