IMO you'll be lucky to get anything edible out of either row. Likely, the ears will form, but will not mature.
Thanks for the info. I believe I have enough room left over to expand to be able to get more of a rectangular shape that would be desired for ultimum corn growing. I should be able to get a third row out of my space which I beleive will help with polination I will give it a try and see what happens. Thanks for the catch.
If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
