My two children love gardening as much as I do. Whenever they are at home and I have some gardening to do, they are always lending their hands to help which is a fun activity for all of us. Last year, I let them plant some corn and they witnessed how it grew, bore fruit, and for the most fun part is watching them harvest what they planted. It was truly memorable, so this year, they asked if they can plant corn again. We bought a pack of sweet corn seeds and the kids planted it last Sunday. Below are the photos I took of them from last year.
In planting corn, you will need the corn seeds and shovel. Here are some steps that we did:
- Bought a pack of corn seeds.
- Soak it overnight before planting.
- Dig a hole about two inches deep and add three corn seeds in each hole.
- Make sure to make two or three rows. With our space, we only made one row which still works but the more rows of corn you have, the better.
You can see how proud my kids are in harvesting their corn.
