Sweet Corn Ready For Picking
DES MOINES, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- There's good news coming from the state tonight, Iowa sweet corn is ready for picking.
Pickers were out at 5:30 this morning at Penick's Sweet Corn in Des Moines picking about 700 ears.
Farmers were a little delayed this year because the ground thawed so late.
That put the season behind by about three weeks.
Penick says the sweet corn will be worth the wait this year.
You'll see it soon at neighborhood stands, farmers markets and grocery stores.
