I'm thinking of planting some popcorn this year. They say it needs to be 300 ft from the sweet corn. I can manage that, but it might be pushing it to get that far from the neighbors field corn, Do you thin the field corn would cross polinate and cause a problem?

I love the look of that Corn Sheller. The popcorn looks yummy.

We always plant the popcorn right next to the Indian corn without issue. The popcorn is in a different lot than the sweetcorn though. The neighbor plants field corn behind dad's place and sometimes it's been right next to the popcorn without any effect.

Due to your thread i stopped by the grocery store and got popcorn and oil. I wanted my kids to see how we used to do it when i was a kid. They get the biggest thrill out of watching the kernals pop, the pot has a glas lid. Now they know that you dont have to have a microwave, and they say it tastes better.
