Indian rainbow corn seed harvest

I planted a small square of Indian rainbow corn to see how late I could plant. That was in February. I harvested the ears a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised by how well they did. I took them off the plants too early but the birds were attacking them and every day it seemed like more arrived.

Such a pretty food! They are sweeter than white mielies and very starchy. I love eating them. I think the Capie prefers sweetcorn. I am going to try grinding them when they are dry. Polenta or porridge. Keep you informed...
