Julie ' i have grown corn in blocks for better pollination and when you think its about time to harvest open the tip of the cob and pop one of the kernals if its clear its not ready if its gluggy and thick its over harvest but if its got a creamy white texture (which is not long after the silk goes brown) its time to roast him on the BBQ.
