Popcorn in technicolor

The rain stopped for a few days, so we decided it was now or never to harvest our popcorn. The weather can go downhill quickly at this time of year. Given the late start, a lot of the corn hadn’t developed all the way and I’m not sure how well it will pop. We also had a bit of a worm problem so we just cut off the bad ends. I was a little shocked at how little popcorn we got from 120 square feet of garden bed. For the amount of popcorn we eat every year it would require a huge growing area.

    Well, it certainly looks very pretty! I wonder if it tastes any different that regular popping corn?

    I guess there’s always Orville Redenbacher to fall back on if this experiment doesn’t pan out…

    We’ve had the best corn year ever – ours should be cut the first week in November. I can’t wait. I want to be able to see the soil again.

      When we grew popcorn before it was the most flavorful popcorn we had ever eaten. It was that good! That is what got us trying again for some more. We already go through huge bags of popping corn every year but it doesn’t taste as good.

      Wow! How nice that you’ve had such a good corn year! I hope you get a marvelous harvest!

    If it won’t pop, can you string the kernals with a very sharp needle? They’d make awesome beads, don’t you think? šŸ™‚
