Sorting corn kernels after de-cobbing

This is the follow-up to my video on de-cobbing corn with my MayaPedal bicimaquina. Here I show how I sort the kernels for flour, for seed, and for chicken feed. I’m not quite as picky about which jars the seeds go in as it might seem in the video. It is really an enjoyable winter indoor gardening activity. I should also point out that I only use the plastic jar for the chicken feed kernels and always use glass jars or paper envelopes for storing seeds of all kinds.

De-cobbing corn and grinding chicken feed with my bicimaquina

Just another activity we do on the farm in the winter. After the braided husks of Navajo Red corn have been hung to dry for about two months, I de-cob the ears with my MayaPedal combination decobber/corn grinder bicimaquina. In this video, I am grinding for chicken feed, but I also use the grinder to make corn meal. (I use an electric grinding mill to make flour.) One of my granddaughters (Cora Phoenix-Price) did most of the video camera work here. Our “seed library” seed storage shelves are behind me on the right side of the thumbnail photo.
