2013 "Colorful Sweet Corn" seed harvest

It was a good year for the corn. There are around two dozen special selected ears hanging in the basement and about a quarter of small, poorly filled or moldy ears we left out in the garden. Even so, here's all the rest.
These are all derivatives of recent outcrosses followed by backcrosses to our own colorful sweet. So they've got at least 1/4 of one of the following: 'Piamonte Orange Flint', 'Japonica Striped' or 'Strawberry Popcorn'. [Most of the colors don't show at the eating stage in case you're wondering.]
