it's a "wild and weedy" ancestor...

...and it has a more than passing connection to domestication so it is germane tot he blog's topic...and i am geeked...so sue me...the silks on the second ear ( top photo ) are coming along well and the silks on the ear at the top leaf node are fully developed and soaking up pollen ( second photo )...the third photo has a bit better angle on the very top of the ear...just under where the silks meet it...emerging from the stem..it should be external tot he stem in the coming week or two and then we should see seeds...you think the gardener is geeked now? just wait...you will all be on teosinte overload...so sue me.
