Sweet corn hits local produce stands
DeKALB – Growing sweet corn is a weather game for local farmers, and this season the rain has helped some crops and delayed others.
Wiltse’s Farm in Maple Park has received more inquiries about its sweet corn than usual this year, and the rainy weather has helped with its crops, said Patty Marco, a Wiltse’s Farm’s employee and Wiltse family member.
Last season’s drought made cultivation difficult, but the sweet corn this year is looking good enough that people should try to get some as soon as they can, she said. They shouldn’t count on the sweet corn lasting for the rest of the year, she said.
