Just a quick note that we have our first batch of corn a few days ago. Though the corn stalks were shorter than usual and in varying heights the corn tasted pretty good. A downpour of 3 1/2 inches of rain, most in a 2 hour span, bent many of the corn stalks. Since corn has a shallow root system this did not surprise me.
BTW, I cooked it the old fashioned way: by boiling. Get the water to a rapid boil, toss the cleaned corn into the water, when it starts boiling again it will be done in 4 1/2 minutes.
