I've grown my own at home in Michigan, and loved it. Our last year there I grew three different varieties - an heirloom from Project Grow, a strawberry cob from Seed Savers Exchange, and Tom Thumb from Johnny's - which blended beautifully on the cob. This year I'm growing Dakota Black Popcorn from Seeds of Change, which should produce lovely dark kernels. As always, fingers crossed that all goes well...

Popcorn Seedlings Up!
As a self-confessed vegetable geek, my excitement (and little dance) at the sight of my popcorn seedlings will be most understandable. Popcorn is easily one of my favorite foods. It's also a little bit difficult to get here in Japan. I don't believe in microwave popcorn - too much other stuff in there plus the assorted health issues even with the organic types - to the same degree that I believe the air popper a prime example of human folly.
