Corn patch update


I took this picture a couple of weeks ago... and they're almost twice that size now. This is the little patch of corn I first wrote about here. The variety is doing quite well thus far, though the leaves have been chewed up by grasshoppers. It seems to be quite tolerant of low water levels. I'm it'll make plenty of seed corn for next year... I need to get my stock up.

Thanks to the USDA seed bank for these guys - I'm researching varieties for Florida and they were kind enough to help me out by sending 100 kernels of this Indian variety I selected from their massive database.
