Sweet Corn Harvest Begins

Posted: Updated:

The first locally grown sweet corn is now being picked. Harvesting started just this week at Mason Farms in Lake City.

 Owner John Mason was busy today using a harvester to pick corn to sell at the farm and at many stands and stores.

 He said the picking is starting earlier than last year when a soggy spring caused big delays in planting.

 Still, some rain this spring has pushed back the harvest a bit.

 Mason said, "Even though we planted them under plastic, it was just cold in April and May. So it put us I guess, about a week behind."

Mason has about 50 acres of corn in Lake City.
