I picked my first ears of popcorn today. The variety is Calico, the same as I grew two years ago. That crop would never pop for me but was very pretty. I’m leaving the ears on the stalk longer this year – until the husk is fully dried. And I’m hoping it will pop.
I also pulled a bunch of shell beans – Black Turtle Soup. I’ll hang them til they dry, then shell them. I have a lot more still waiting for harvest.
And I picked all of my pepper that were close to mature. I want to have as many as I can for roasting and freezing tomorrow.
