I bought some Glass Gem corn seeds, and I'm going to plant them soon. I'm here in San Francisco, where it's usually cool and foggy. I'm wondering which is a better way to plant them: in rows, or Indian style, in clumps? I don't have a big space. Which way gets the best yield for the space?
I wrestled with reality for 36 years, and I'm happy to say I finally won out over it.
I don't know if this helps but not all native Americans grew/grow it in clumps, the Tarahumara grow theirs in fields and plant beans around the perimeter. Not sure what benefit that has but it does seem like it'd give a good bean to corn ratio.
Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more, it's a tiny ad:
