12. I'm in southern middle TN!
Gonna start the sprouts indoors, then transplant them late June-early July. Lots of folks plant starts in spring, but they are better if you can work it to get a frost in before you pick. This is kind of an experiment for me, I have never grown them here, so I will have to see how it works out. Such a long season here, I have to start the sprouts late to get in the frost.

People up North can't believe I'd grow a corn crop, then chop it down and plant beans afterward in the same season. But I did it for years. Beans put the N back for next spring's corn. Just not much luck with cob corn. It's fine to cut off the cob and freeze, though. Skipped it this year. I have plenty frozen.
