Southern Alberta’s sweet summer treat is getting closer to hitting a stand near you.
The recent heat is helping push along Taber corn crops, after a slower start to the growing season.
Dave Johnson with Johnson Farms says things are moving along nicely now. “Everything’s in bloom and the corn’s starting to tassel, and we’ve got some cobs on their way to forming. Everything’s in pretty good progress.”
Johnson notes they’re crossing their fingers that the first crop will be ready for sale in two weeks time, if the weather continues to cooperate.
