I had ~20 ears of corn left over that got too starchy before I was able to eat them or give them away. So I left them on the stalks for another week, and then it was time to till it all in, so I just yanked them off and threw them on the patio.
Then I thought I should do something more dignified, so I pulled the husks all the way back and tied them into bunches to hang and dry:
Hmmm. What can I do with them now? I suppose they'll be useful as holiday decorations come fall. Are they edible once dried? Can I fry them into corn nuts?
I don't think I want to save them for seed, because they're hybrid (Bi-Licious), although they certainly will grow if given the chance. I tilled in a few cobs, and I've got little 2" high corn plants all over the old patch right now.
