Thought id post of my glass gem corn harvest!
I wanted to plant corn in my garden for about 7 years and FINALLY got around to it this year.

Some of them ended up as sweet corn hybrids so instead of saving those I just cooked and ate them after harvest, pretty good meal I'd say!

I harvested them way too late (early November) because the ears looked so small, and I'll definitely supplement the seeds i from those cobs with some from the supplier we bought the seeds for these ones for.

Had a fun time separating all the seeds by color for next year though I know that it doesn't really affect the outcome. But I think It'd be funny to pollinate the plants with only plants that grew from the same color of seed (if that makes sense?) Just to see what happens.

To be honest I'm just bored most of the year so it's not like I have anything better to do

OH!! didnt consider that at all! i assume sweet corn is probably better for popping, but i have 3 more cobs in the fridge (wanted to cook them but forgot so now they're dry lol) so MIGHT try it for the heck of it

I gre this too this year. I want to see if I can get it to pop. I haven't tried yet. It's a flint corn I believe.
