Planting Sweet Corn & Lima Beans

I planted my sweet corn yesterday and I always plant it a little late. Within a mile of me the farmers plant at least a thousand acres of field corn. When my sweet corn is ready to harvest, the raccoons have already been eating the field corn for several days and never find mine. I used to use an electric fence but by planting a little late I've had no raccoon damage in 20 years.
Today I planted Fordhook 242 bush type lima beans. Not quite a full 90 foot row. A little room left for a little more stuff.


  1. Your garden is gorgeous! I have to ask, how do you keep the grass from invading?

  2. I have a hoe and a rototiller and they get used. A lot!!!
