Garden stuff

This one stalk of popcorn has at least 8 cobs on it. This main stalk also has 2 more stalks from the base that has more cobs.

The popcorn tassels are strange on this variety. It seems confused. It has silk and a little corn like cob, but the rest of it is the tassel with the pollen that falls on the silk of the cobs to fertilize.

This is a big sunflower that is about to open up.
