Our season is too short for popcorn, although we keep hoping and plant some every year

Same here. I like trying to grow it, gets quite tall and looks nice.

That's my popcorn from last year (1st time growing it!)

The variety we tried last year was a hulless white, got about six feet tall but just didn't have time to form ears. This year I'm going to "boost" it in the oven and see what happens

Another fast germinating trick is to soak the corn (sometimes other seeds are aided too) in a bowl of water overnight.  I'd be a bit suspicious of the oven overheating the seed and ruining it, though you have obviously been happy.

How bout seeding ornamental corn by sweet corn? I don't NEED to grow it, but I thought it would be cool to try it out and see what this "ornamental" corn looks like
