    Corn Suggestion:
    SIMONET CORN Zea May – this corn was developed by a Canadian Bob Simonet. I can grow it in my cold zone 2 maybe 3. I found the ears a bit smaller but the taste is delicious and I was able to save seed. This years corn is from saved seed – not ready yet the cobs are a bit smaller and right now very white kernels. Will see in the next 2 weeks what happens. The plants are shorter than other corn in my area.
    thanks for great site….
