Anyone know of any roadside stands selling sweet corn around Indianapolis. It's tough to wait for the farmers markets. Thanks.

The earliest corn they had wasn't, but that was back when Indiana corn wasn't ready yet.

The corn I bought there yesterday was Indiana corn.

I thought there was more than corn in Indiana. Is this really news?

and how do you know the corn is really Indiana corn? You only have the word of the seller unless you pick it or grow it yourself.
I bet it's all Florida corn.

I know you were asking this to be cute, but here's the answer:
It is digested...just the inside of the corn, actually. The outer kernel is made of very fibrous material and thus doesn't always get broken down. But it's good to eat it...kind of like a rotorouter for your insides. MMmmmm...who's eating corn tonight? Good table conversations.

There isn't a grain of truth to that myth. Some people 'ear stuff and repeat it without thinking.

I just picked up the best corn grown in the state. It comes from a little road side stand in Martinsville. Always pick up a dozen on my way back from Lake Monroe every week. Last Friday was the first day of corn.

Is it news? with the demand there is for it, you bet!Mine's not ready yet, people are already stopping by and placing pre-orders. I grow 6 varities, with the plantings spread out so they don't ripen all at once. The type of seed one plants makes an enormous difference in the end product. The old sweet corn like Illini Extra, Silver Queen, or Io Chief was ripe on the stalk and ready for only about one week, and would not keep off the stalk for longer than about 3 days without processing. The new "synergistic" seeds such as Honey Select, Obssesion, 272A, etc. have about a 2 to 3 week picking window, and if handled correctly (cooled down as quick as possible after picking, then kept below 50 degrees), it will last about 2-3 weeks after picking. And if they claim it is organic and grown in Indiana, then expect ear worms! They love organic corn better than anything. If the corn isn't to have ear worms, as my customers demand, then a little timely dusting of mild insecticide will keep them out. Better living through chemistry!
The tomatoes are starting to ripen, too! I had my first ones last week.

It is if you go to all the bother to chew it.
