Planting a small family corn plot

I plant about 8,000ft2 of seeet corn for the family garden. Half will be early corn and half late corn. I cultivate the whole plot with my tractor and plant half with early corn and half with late maturing corn. The ground is perfect and I plant the corn by hand the day I cultivate the ground. The problem I have is as the corn germinates so does the weeds. It's a constant battle all summer and I feel we damage the young corn when we try controlling the weeds by hand. There has to be a better way. Is there a weed killer I can use that will be safe to use on the corn? I heard if roundup ready corn cant buy a few pounds without a license??? Do you have a pamphlet or directions on how to plant a small weed free family plot if corn?

Italian Oregano

A friend of ours gave us some Italian Oregano which had needles instead of the normal leaves. It looked like a rosemary plant. Had some leaves but mostly needles. We grew it for one year and it was supposed to come back but it never came back. The plants were about 8 to 12 inches high. It had some leaves but mostly needles. It was Italian oregano that came from Italy. If you squeezed the needles with your fingers, you could smell the oregano. If any body in your department would know the specific name of this oregano with needles we would appreciate your help on where we could purchase it. Thank you. Richard Crofutt email at
