Ornamental Corn

This year I decided to grow ornamental corn.  The growing period is about 20 days longer than our area of Saskatchewan so I started it early in the greenhouse.  I babied these little plants along, transplanting, covering for late frosts, and watering.  I picked the corn yesterday and I am really glad I made the effort.  They are just beautiful and I love the colours.

I also ended up with the ugliest cob of corn I have ever seen.  Not sure what happened with this one!
