One of the ears of corn in the back part of the three-sisters patch had gone from green to tan, a sign of ripening. The stalk it was on had gotten pushed over or had fallen, I don’t know which. So I picked it, to see what was inside.
Then I took photos from as close as the camera would get.
The ear wasn’t fully pollinated.
Why do we write pollinated with an “i” when we’re talking about pollen with an “e”?
Please tell me if you know.
There was an unfertilized streak down the side of the cob.
Which showed off the sides of the fertilized kernels very well.
The kernels seemed to be at various stages of development.
Some were quite darker than others.
Supposedly it’s a variety of popcorn.
Well try to pop it when it’s fully dry.
