If you don't have that much you could pollinate them yourself. Tip the pot, put a paper bag over the top, tap the plant to release the pollen then rest the pot and shake a little pollen on the tassel.

I once spent an hour trying to find the correct spelling of a word. No luck with spell check, couldn't even find the word in the dictionary.

The word?

OF

I was trying to spell it "OUGH".

The funny part is growing corn in pots. Reminded me of Green Acres.
