IMG_0115 (1024x768)There is a variety of Hopi Blue corn that local gardeners have been sharing. Critters kept getting my sprouts as they started, so my corn was few and far between.   As the silk turned brown and leaves did too, picked some and saw how few kernels had developed and left the rest on the stalks.  Until today. Cleaning out the garden and started unwrapping the ears and found some pretty nice kernels had formed.  came in and got the ones that had been picked months ago and had been sitting inside every since and dehusked them also.  They are the ones with the pale color.  Most are blue with some assorted other colors in between.  A couple of the ears are distinctively green.  Will save some for seed for next year and make corn meal with the rest.
