Brooms from broom corn
I grew broom corn as an exciting experiment this year and boy did it take off! I planted 15 seeds and the plants surpassed 10 feet tall giving me numerous heads that I hope I can use to make whisks and brooms. It hasn't been easy to find information about how and when to harvest, dry and prepare the heads and then how to make the brooms as they were made in the past. But I did find enough to get me going.
Anyone done this? Or have you stumbled on Youtube videos about preparing the heads?
