"If these are your corn plants in the back row I would say they are too far apart and not enough rows. Corn like nitrogen for growth. Nice looking garden arrangment."

Wait until the silks are brown before harvesting. If there are not many developed kernals of corn then the tassels have not fertilized the silks to allow the kernals to develop. Maybe the plants are too far apart prohibiting fertilization.

I think you will have much successs with the square foot method. But since it is a raised bed method it will require more watering. Locating them to catch or slow down natural drainage can help but don;t give up adaquate sunshine. each new year will also require some more fertilizer to replace what was used by plants last year. Adding mulch, leaves, and grass clippings will provide food for earthworms that will improve your soil for years to come.
