Successful test trials of Painted Mountain Corn at Inspiration Farm Academy. Some for seed and a bit for grindin' vic: I grow Painted Mountain corn, as well.  Yes, it is a flour corn, but to pick it fresh and eat it as corn on the cob is wonderful!  Instead of being full of corn water like the kind you get from the grocery store, it is full of corn 'meat'.  It doesn't...
