I sowed the Painted mountain corn this week. I took the best 15 cobs fro last year and took 15 kernels from each. I arranged them so that the grains from each cob formed a row with the lighter coloured ones at one end of the bed and the darker ones at the other. I don't know how colour is inherited in corn and I'm not sure this little experiment will tell me much but I am looking forward to laying the cobs out and seeing if there is any pattern to it.
Now that that is done I am going to grind some of the rest and make polenta.
