With today’s gardening tools that are available, it shouldn’t be that hard really. Now, as a side note there was a study that proves gardening can add years to your life.
So not only is growing your own food good for your health because you are eating better, but the actual activity of gardening is good for you physically. Don’t believe me do you?!? Well check out this article that lays it all out for you.

I love this guy’s accent, but mostly I like how simple he keeps what it takes to grow sweet corn. As you saw in the video it doesn’t take very much room at all to grow corn and preparing the soil was pretty easy too! The measurements he’s using are metric but that should be easy for you to convert since you should have a metric scale on the bottom side of your measuring tape or ruler.
If you’re unfamiliar with the metric system and want a short cut I’ll just go ahead and tell you that 25 cm is about 6 inches and 50 cm is about a foot.
Hopefully if you haven’t tried growing sweet corn, you will give it a try. You will enjoy it fresh and in the middle of winter when you pull some out of your freezer, and think how worthwhile growing your own sweet corn was.
