…it’s nowhere near the fourth (or, for those who know better, the second) of July, but it’s still planting season:
“Knee-high by the fourth of July,” nuthin.’ Aiming for harvest about that time, with eye to a second crop. Bonus points for fresh corn on (real) Independence Day.
(Protip: boil with fresh basil leaves. No fresh basil? It’s early enough to start some!)
