and kernels' juice just turns milky.

Since corn doesn't hold long in the field and yet needs to be planted in 5'x5' blocks, you need to plant both early and late varieties, or else sow more than once. 
Be aware that the old time varieties are not as super sweet as modern hybrids and do not have a long shelf life.
