Popcorn – My Sunday Photo

I’m sure in five years time, I’ll be a dab hand at this growing popcorn malarky. I’ll be able to tell you the ins and outs of growing it. One things for sure, it’s not the same as sweetcorn, despite appearances. This year is our first year, with popcorn. I’m still learning the best way to grow and, most relevant now, when to harvest them.

The plants have been quite a sight. Taller than my sweetcorn. Every time I pass them, I feel like I’m on the edge of a great field full of popcorn. Stretching as far as the eye can see. I’m not, but my 16 plants are still impressive.

The strong winds last night, toppled a few, as it rudely pushed its determined way through my popcorn plants. They look like giants that have toppled. As part of my learning curve, I chose one medium cob to see how it was doing.

It needs to dry more. I’d like to leave the plants in the ground, just a little while longer. Pollination has been a little bit hit and miss, by the looks of it. Still not bad for a first try. If nothing else, I can use these as autumn decorations.
