That's not too small. You should get good pollination. Not too late yet, but close. Get it in the ground now.

Not too late. Depends on the variety, and number of days to maturity. I plant succession plantings, from the day I can plant the first seeds, to mid July, about every 2 weeks, for steady corn, all summer.

Thanks ! going to seed this weekend , have not bought seed yet so not sure on the variaty but Sweet corn is my favorite. I like the idea of "succession plantings" so with that the center that I get the seed from sometimes has corn growing in flats about a foot tall if they have them I'll get enough for a row.
