outdoor teosinte

some end of the season photos of outdoor teosinte ears...temperatures are forecast to have sub-freezing highs in the coming week so their season has little time left...all the seeds i can see are still green so there's not a lot of hope for viable seed...which is fine since i have several lines of seed to work with...the plant simply has too long a season for this climate zone...i will be containerizing some next sprint to "finish" indoors next autumn and i am planning a much larger scale outdoor planting as the plants die back and i remover them there will be more morphological comparisons with dense yellow #2 ( alas...the two are related...there are black sheep in every family ) particularly support root structures...i will be getting better shots of the tiers of teosinte roots.
