It's not much, but rather amazing considering the weather we have had. What do I do with it now? Is there a process for letting it become seed for next year?

My harvest from the big garden I worked on.
From Chester in New Mexico -
YOUR CORN HAS BEEN GROWING WELL. I WILL SEND YOU SOME WHEN IT IS READY......... IT HAS BEEN PLANTED WITH ABOUT 150 OTHER PLANTS OF BLUE CORN BUT AS YOU REMEMBER, IT IS ABOUT 2-3 WEEKS BEHIND SCHEDULE. TOO DATE 4 CORNIES HAVE BEEN OBSERVED ON THE PLANT. THEY WERE PLANTED THE OLD NATIVE AMERICAN STYLE.... IN A CLUMP MIXED WITH BEANS.......
WILL KEEP YOU POSTED.......... CHEERS
From Julie here in Lubbock -
Yesterday Darin and I pulled the corn and unwrapped beautiful blue kernels. This year was sparce in the garden. As you can see, there was no much of a bounty but what there was is gorgeous. This is my favorite shade of blue.
Please see attached and add to your blog as you see fit. Back to the 'rillo, look out for Darin!

Here's a ear I pulled because I was worried about some bugs. I cut the stalk and husked this one. The other few plants/ears appear insect free from the outside. I'm drying this one in the sun hoping to obtain some seeds. I'll be lucky to have four good mature ears. I read that it's best to let ears dry out of the stalk and then harvest, husk, kernel and save them in a cool dry spot. Can I get an "amen" or "you're screwed"on this from all you farmers :-) TIA
