Another farming success story.
Dried Stalks

The popcorn stalks were totally dried out before the ears were picked. The local farmers kept asking if the corn was okay since they though the stalks were regular sweet corn which would already be way past picking at this point. Kinda funny.

Drying Out

A bunch of nice looking ears of popcorn drying out. Each cob produced about 350 individual pieces of porcorn.

Resources

As an amateur farmer, I am constantly looking for information to make things easier, and to be more productive in my farms.

My best resource though is all of you REAL FARMERS out there. If you are growing popcorn, please take some time and post a comment with your thoughts, suggestions, constructive criticism, and links to useful sites.

Your input will be greatly appreciated not only by me, but anyone else visiting this page. Thanking you ahead of time for posting.

For now check out the following links, which I found to be very useful.
