Iowa sweet corn may not be ready for the 4th


Iowa's cold, wet spring could delay some of summer's best food, sweet corn.

A Grimes farmer told the Associated Press that he might have a few ears ready by July 4th. But he says he's betting that most of corn won't be ready until days later.

Another Adel farmer says he was on normal schedule until last weeks cold snap delayed development.
