"What do you use to keep cabbage worms away? Your cabbage is really nice and clean looking.I am in Ohio and they are like plague here. Yes, I can pick the worms off and the birds love them. I get the eggs of course and I like doing this it is part of gardening.There is BT and I have made some home brewed pesticides with some success.I usually have to cover my cabbage with netting but some worms still sneak in.Nice looking garden. Also I have bought a few of your products over the years and they are excellent. I just purchased a little corn from you today. Have a great season.Have always got your name from JWR site."
Seed for Security, LLC Reply Hello Mike,
Oh yes, I am very familiar with cabbage worms. I check my garden every day and when I first notice them I spay with Neem Oil. It is an organic pesticide and it is very effective. Thank you for your kind words. It is always nice to hear from a fellow gardener.
"This is the first year I planted you flint corn, it did wonderful in Eastern Washington. I left it on the stock until the middle of November. I wanted to get it in earlier but just could not. By the time I did pick it,our sunshine/sunny days were gone. I put the corn, on the cob, in burlap sacks and hung it in the garage, hoping it would further dry. I took some corn off the stock in October for decorations and brought them into the house. The corn that we brought in the house dented. The corn that is hanging has not dented yet and seems more moist if I try eating a kernel. It is hard but not as hard as the dented corn that was brought into the house. I ground some of the corn on Thanksgiving and it turned out wonderful! Both the corn I used for decoration and the corn I had hung in the garage ground well using my country Living mill. Anyways, I am unsure if the corn in the garage has sufficiently dried yet. How might I be able to tell for sure? Thanks!"
Seed for Security, LLC Reply So happy our flint corn grew well for you! It is very reliable! To dry our corn it needs to be open to the air. Dry it on wire racks so air can get to all sides of the ear. You will know when it is dry enough to store when a kernel smashed on concrete with a hammer shatters. If it is mushy at all it needs to be dried further.
Wanted to write and let you know I am very happy with the great seeds you sent. In my book there is nothing as excellent as purchasing a top self product, and your product is first rate. Appreciate your planting directions and growing info also. The care and effort you all put into this shows. You have a permanent customer for life here. Will be purchasing a few more of your seed in the near future. Please keep up the great work. Look forward to growing and harvesting some toothsome garden delicacies next year!"
