Any around yet or am I just dreaming. Probably too early. Thanks.

      the lowell farmers' market had ny state corn last week, which kind of surprised me, but yeah, local corn is always pretty late to the summer party.

    2. Corn in Southern NH I'm seeing is about 1-2' high. Not yet.

      1. from what I remember, usually around first or second week of August, same time for non greenhouse native tomatoes. Maybe corn a bit earlier, but not much. And we've had so much rain...maybe affecting timing as well.

        1. The old phrase "knee-high by the Fourth of July" is more than just a rhyme. It will be several weeks before our local corn is ready for devouring.
