2012 - an a"maize"ing harvest?

The a"maize"ing flower at our allotment - will we get Inca grub in 2012?
First year on the allotment, we decided to try maize. After this dreary summer, I had, and still have doubts whether we would see it bloom, or if we would get a harvest. At least it bloomed. 
Well, all sprouted, and has reached close to 2 meters. Five days ago, I discovered that one blooemd, and a small pouch along the stem indicated that it may hold a cob of corn. 
I suspect the Norwegian fall may be too cold in 2012, in order to get harvest to talk of. I sincerely hope I will get both corn for my cooking as well as seeds for next year. I will keep you posted on the progress.
