75 seeds per packet (unless otherwise noted). Sweet Corn is tender and will not stand frost, nor will it germinate well in wet, cold soils. It responds to good soil and clean, frequent cultivation. Plant in well-fertilized hills 3 feet apart each way, putting 5 or 6 kernels in each hill and covering to a depth of about 1½ inches. When about 6 inches high, remove from each hill all but the three most vigorous stalks. Many gardeners sow the seed in rows 3 feet apart, leaving the plants standing singly about 9 inches apart. For a succession throughout the season, plant early in May several varieties starting from the earliest producing variety to the latest. A good second early variety planted at intervals of two weeks until the middle of July will produce a continuous supply. Approximate weights: 1 bushel = 45-50 pounds and 1 quart = 1½ pounds.
