Clem's Sweet Corn

Some weeks before harvest
The stand was around 7 - 8 feet tall

The first cob harvested

After 3 minutes in the microwave oven
One can see that pollination could have been better (the stand was only a 7 X 2 plant block due to space restriction)
Each strand of corn silk if pollinated gives rise to one corn kernel
Cobs are harvested when the silk turns dry and brown

Other cobs harvested a few days later
These appear to have been pollinated more regularly
