My pictures show two of the lovely specimens. We planted a good sized patch of sweet corn this year in a new area that we never planted in before. It was an heirloom variety and we were eager for the harvest. The high heat at the wrong time of year caused pollination to be limited. But we have quite a few ears of this delicacy also known as corn smut, a fungus. Something that actually is eaten by some in soups and quesadillas.

So, we are throwing the smut into the burn pile. We won't plant corn there ever again, but can other crops be planted there without any ill effects?

Thanks for any and all help and sorry if the photos were disgusting. When I was searching about this online, I ran into images of canned huitlacoche. yuck.
