This is a shot of some of my sweet corn. I have around 45 growing in total. A bunch have their tassles already for pollinating. I can almost taste them now. I love BBQing them for a tastyu treat. How's your fave way to eat sweet corn? How is your corn doing this year? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I really love sweet corn but would you believe that I have never had sweet corn made on the grill. It really sounds delicious. I think i'm going to buy some tomorrow and have my hubby grill it for the 4th of July. Thanks for the idea!

A lot of carnivals, State Fairs, and County Fairs sell it grilled. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

The local Mustard Festival does them in butter, honey and mustard. I didn't think I'd like it, but they're really quite good.

I like corn made any way whether it be on the cob boiled or on the grill or whole kernel or cream style. My mother used to make the best tasting cream style corn and would have many bags of them in the freezer for all year. oh how I miss those days.

I leave the husk on, open it slightly adding butter and various spices and a little water. I close the husk over the ear then wrap in foil and BBQ it till it smells done. YUMM! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

My corn is at that stage, too, but unfortunately out of the 10 that I planted only 1 came up! They had started nicely inside but now there's only one. So, no corn this year unless by some miracle it get pollinated. I love corn grilled or boiled, no butter or salt. Good corn doesn't need anything to be tasty! I'll be getting mine from the local farmers this year, though.

I started about 20 indoors and they were about a foot tall when planted outdoors late May. The tallest one is now nearly waist high to my wife. Looking good and all. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I love sweet corn too. We are not growing any. We always buy ours from a friend of ours, parent's/ They have the best corn on the cob, in the world, LOL. I like mine boiled or cooked on the grill also.

I didn't get to plant corn this year. I wish I did. Love fresh corn. I will have to be happy with what I can buy. You are fortunate to have such good luck!

Hi GRANDPA BOB, Your sweet corn plant is looking great, I love to have on BBQs as well but most time I just boil them or roast them in the oven and have with butter, I'll have to go and buy some this week now. Tamara

As long as it's warm outsdide I prefer to BBQ as opposed to boiling mine. Much tastier that way actually as the flavor stays in the husk. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I have one cornstalk coming up, but I only planted 4 kernels anyway. I figured the squirrels would get them like they did last year so didn't really bother with corn this year. I planted carrots and parsnips that didn't come up at all. I replanted them, and the carrots managed to come up this time but they're not doing much, just like the radishes aren't doing much, either. It's like some evil person put a stasis spell on my garden. The flowers, however, are doing well enough.

I like mine on the grill as well. This year I staggered the planting so I have corn throughout the summer instead of all at once. The first planting is just about ready for picking. I've been getting a TON of sweet corn from some of my customers so I've been freezing them for winter's eating. We are also going to be picking some field corn as they are ready for eating as well. I actually prefer field corn to sweet corn. I love my corn slathered in melted butter and lightly salted.

Your gardening pics sure to bring back memories of my childhood at my Dads. I love corn on the cob and it seems we have it more often during the summer...in fact we had some last night. I'd definately be growing it if I had a garden. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

I love corn on the cob. I don't much like the separated kernels but corn on the cob with butter, is delicious. Somehow, when they take the kernels off the taste is lost. Happy munching Grandpa Bob. Brightest Blessings.
