I’m thinking about picking myself up some ‘Hookers’…. sweet corn that is. Har!
No, but seriously. While perusing the Seeds of Diversity 2009 Member Seed Directory I stumbled upon ‘Hookers’ Sweet Corn, a variety that is described as great for containers and small spaces with kernels that turn blue/black when mature. [Seeds of Change sells it too] I think I might have to give this one a try. I gave up on corn a few years back when the raccoons ravaged my container crops only days before the cobs were ready for harvest. Murderers!
In all honestly it was the variety name that drew me to look at the description in the first place. For some reason I always take the full colour catalogues seriously, but when it comes to the black and white text only catalogues the brain of an immature preteen boy takes over and I always waste the first go through looking for the most absurd and sexualized varieties. I then proceed to flag and highlight them. Oh the fun.
