Just a little more than a year ago, I was the lucky guy who won a pack of heirloom popcorn seeds from Paula at The Dishing Divine.
The seeds were tucked away with our other seeds and needless to say, I almost forgot about them until mid-June.
Our growing season in the Adirondacks is 90 days give or take, so I was worried they wouldn't produce, but what's to lose, right?
So in the garden they went, they germinated, the cornstalks grew and grew, but my mid-August, no tassles.
Oh well, maybe next year, but then, at the end of August, the tassles came, and sure as shit, we had some itsy bitsy popcorn growing.
Well, to make a long story short, it kept coming, and we had a nice little harvest. We've got it drying now, and I might even try popping some at some point.
I love the colors.
Quite a variety of color in those seeds, we'll definitely do it again next year, because it's fun!
