Failed Sweetcorn

Unfortunately my sweetcorn seems to have failed this year.  The general opinon on the downsizer forums is that they have been somewhat mistreated.  They do have their feet mainly in rotted manure which is probably too rich for them.  Only a foot high they’ve just sprouted their silks.  It could also be a lack of water.  It has been fairly dry and I’ve not really watered the raised beds because they always feel damp to me.  It could also of course be too much water.  Anyway, it looks like my most successful crop of 2007 hasn’t repeated this year, so roll on 2009.
