Puss...the cobs grow on the sides of the plants.....you should hopefully get three or four off each plant. Mine are forming but are not ready yet.
Hope you don't get earwigs in yours.........lol

The grass seed like thing at the top drops the pollen.
That is why sweet corn is best grown in a block ( square ) as the bits lower down get fertilized by the pollen blown on the wind...........I hope the explaination isn't so rude that the post gets reported....lol
