Time to Plant Award-Winning Corn

Depending on your neck of the woods (or desert), it may be time to plant more tender plants like tomatoes, corn, and beans. Today on the Access Utah Gardening Show, Utah State University Extension vegetable specialist Dan Drost will join us for the entire hour. We'll discuss the signs that give an indication that it's warm enough to pop those tender plants and seeds into the ground. Barring an extended snap of cold and wet weather, your corn should be the best it has been in several years.
