    Default Dried cornstalks?

    Do people sell these? Where would I buy some?

    Yes, most road side stands, farms, gardening stores or be bad like my sister & pull your car over in the middle of the night next to a corn field & load up. Be Bad, Very Bad.

    Our pumpkin place sells bundles of them every year. We always buy them a few weeks early and let them dry out.

    What do you plan to do with the corn stalks? Just wondering because we planted corn this year & we're saving ours to use at Halloween. I'm just not sure how I want to use them. Any suggestions?

    Most stands or garden centers that sell pumpkins will sell corn stalks.

    On the side of my driveway I want to create a mini corn patch with jack-0-lanterns and a scarecrow.

    Wal-Mart or any large store, farm stands along the road, farm markets, and farms themselves all sell them! Of course, at most stores, they want WAY too much for only a few of them, which is ridiculous... I'm hoping to get a LOT from my local farmer this year - and for cheap!

    Farm stores usually have them on the cheap.

    I use about two dozen full-sized stalks to surround the scarecrow. I bunch two or three stalks together around some thin rebar and then use zip straps. It helps if you reinforce the bundle with a thin wooden dowel that reaches beyond the top of the rebar.

    Only thing different for next year is I'm takin' the corn off before settin' up the stalks. The squirrels went berserk through the latter half of October and I'm not keen to have them back.

    Cheers,

    JD
