I noticed after the freeze the cornstalks dried out quickly. I pruned the plants down but left the corn and I pruned the tips of the corn too thinking it might dry faster or, at a minimum be easier to husk. I will probably turn the lower portions of the stalks into "firewood" because it takes 2 years for them to decompose here. They will dry out faster than they will decompose.

Ps most of the corn is at a nice height for picking but a few ears were up over my head... the front row lacked fertilizer or water and its a bit short for picking.

Overall, happy with it... I've now got lots of corn to choose from to get my popcorn breeding project started.
