I am new to ornamental corn growing. I've not seen any questions like mine and hope it isnt too elementary to ask. I have some really tall strong plants with large ears on them. I would like to dry these for decorative use. should I dry them on the stalk or pick and dry elsewhere? I have had some deer trouble with my sweet corn in the same area and am a bit concerned that they may move on over and start on that too. Can anyone help?
