I grew this corn, called Cascade Creamcrop, (bred by Carol Deppe, author of the Resilient Gardener) to grind into polenta. And also to make compost with the stalks. I've just started the harvest today. Doesn't it look great?
Note that leaving the husks on the cob like that caused a pretty much immediate growth of mold, so I quickly shucked them all the way before they could become a massive moldy mess. Now to pull the seeds off the cob, save a few of the best for next year's crop, and dry the rest for grinding. And that reminds me that I need to get a grinder.
