How to Grow
Direct sow outdoors after the threat of frost has passed, until mid-summer. Sow corn seeds directly 3-4 inches apart, in rows spaced 36 inches apart in blocks of at least 4 rows to insure proper pollination for kernel formation. Thin plants to indicated spacing if necessary. Corn requires fertile soil and little attention. Water during dry periods. Harvest when ears are full and kernels are swollen and milky. Take care not to let ears over-ripen.
About the Artist
Fractal painting by Michaela Colleen Barrett. As a self-proclaimed Artist and Nomad, Michaela spends her time traveling and collecting bits of thought that (with proper care) germinate and flower into healthy ideas.
From the Artist: "Creating a seed pack for the Hudson Valley Seed Library gave me an opportunity to express my interests in a new way. My study of Fractal Geometry has been playing out in images of animals with a repeating circle motif, but an ear of corn was also such a swell fit! Fractal Patterns are the foundation of plants, clouds, shorelines, mountains, trees, and pretty much everything else that wasn't made by man. Through the repetition of circles, a basic example of Fractal Patterning, we can see a glimpse beneath the surface of our environment into the heart of how the world is constructed."
Medium: Ink and Gouache on Watercolor Paper
