    Here in Ok the corn is harvested and already in the freezer.

    Bad, bad year. I was able to irrigate mine and it got over 7 feet tall. Neighbor is growing field corn and it never got beyond the place where yours was in the picture. All he will get is nubbins.

    Ours is almost done making corn, although I started late. It even took 2 beatings from a storm. Flatened it bad the second time...it still grew up though. I got 250 ears from 15 rows about 20 feet long each so far...there are a few more out there. That's the best I've done in years.

    Its around 5/7ft tall, and has made the cob. Need a couple hard long rains to put the kernals on it. My dad said they used to raise Bloody Butcher corn around home when he was a kid. Not alot, but enough to not make it an oddity when u saw it

    I have some 2003 Bloody Butcher seed. It is too late to plant here. Does anyone know if it will still be viable next year?

    Annie;

    If you've kept that seed in the freezer it will be good for years. Not sure about open room storage.
