Did you get a chance to order some corn seed from Chiapas? At my place, we've planted both the black and the yellow and both seem to be doing well.
Now honestly, is there anything more romantic than seeing corn coming up on your garden plot and knowing this corn has been in production since the time of the Mayan kingdoms? From Chiapas to your garden is quite a journey. The only thing better will be eating tortillas or tamales made from the corn, and that day is coming.
