Unless y'all grow the stuff yourself, you are likely to get fresh field corn in Indy. Or one heck of a poor grade of sweet 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.
There are organic insecticide that are safe to use. I have had ear worms in plenty of chemically grown corn.

It's news because Indiana has corn. Period. What other reason do you need?

Is spelling a luxury, too?
$3 is pretty cheap for 12 ears of corn, lady. Cheaper than the junk food your kids are eating at school.
But, there is no Indiana sweet corn available right now. Remember, we just had a drought.
