Harvest Time

We were super excited to harvest our mini-plot of maize last week!!! We planted red maize and it is astoundingly beautiful! Here is Hizee displaying two beautiful cobs; Ziko demonstrating the harvesting technique (ripping the top open and pulling out the cob); Miguel, Enrique, and Ziko leaving our field with the sacks filled with the maize cobs; and finally, the maize put out to dry on our roof. Once the corn has had more time to dry we will rub the kernals off (probably in February or so).
