    I forgot to mention on this Hickory Cane traditionally it had only eight rows of very large kernels. I noticed some of what I shelled had more than eight rows. To keep it true to type please try saving future seed only from ears with the eight rows.

    If you do the damp towel germination technique I would also recommend planting the largest swollen kernels in the center of the plot so the pollen from them is concentrated.

    Seed went out to eight states. Mail carrier was happy since they are still in their package count period. Looks like CS may have the offer in the next issue so perhaps it can be reestablished.

    Funny I looked everywhere I could think of for Hickory Cane seed only to find a guy growing it less than a mile away. He normally has let me feed out the excess stalks to my cattle - and I have fed many a one that way - not knowing what it was. I thought he was saying Hickory King - which is readily available at the local Co-op. Finally was able to translate he was saying Cane and not King.

    colo-Dado! As my enthusiatic 4 yo calls it.
    we got corn! As I opened the package the children eagerly waited to see them, any one who didn't know better would think I pulled pure gold out of that envelope. :)

    You made our day!
