I have a corn patch that is about 30' X 20" and am harvesting my sweet corn now. I figure in about another week I should just about have all of it harvested. So I'm thinking that as soon as I'm through picking the ears then I should plant either a cover crop of some type in between the rows or maybe some kind of a vegetable that will grow this late in the season between the cornstalk rows. I figure if I leave the stalks standing then it will provide shade for a couple more weeks till something is up and going. In a couple more weeks the corn stalks will have dried up and our annual summer drought season will be here. In late July and August our temps can be 100 or more thus limiting most vegetable crops but not sure about any kind of a cover crop such as wheat, rye, soybean, etc. Any suggestions out there?
