Saving (Pretty) Seed – Glass Gem Corn

Drying Glass Gem CornMy Glass Gem Corn has been happily drying above my home office and today was the day to strip the cobs and put up the kernels for popcorn and next year’s planting.  If you have been following my blog for any amount of time you know that I have an abundant affection for this particular varietal which translates into an excess of photos…

I stripped all the multi-color cobs leaving the two almost entirely blue cobs for last.

Glass Gem Kernels and CobsSome of the kernels will be seed for next year and some will be popcorn, but in the meantime, they are still decorating my home office.
