My corn has a lot of baby corn growing at the bottom and my plants are about 2 feet tall right now. I pulled some off but they are coming back. Do I take them off or what do I do?

It's unusual that you have more than 2 ears of corn per stalk. Most corn varieties only produce 2 ears per plant. If you have more ears forming, let them grow! As long as your plants are getting proper care, there's still plenty of time left, have some fun by watching your later crop mature and then enjoy your sweet corn harvest later in the year! Here's an article that provides some tips on growing sweet corn: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/corn/grow-sweet-corn.htm
