WOOO HOOO!!! Best tasting corn I've ever grown!
Had to beat DD out of it because she kept trying to eat it before it was ready, and look for worms. We shucked and froze 122 ears tonight, and I have that much to do tomorrow!
(Steamed and dunked a bunch in butter too... They GOT IN MY BELLAH!)
I am VERY pleased how this crop turned out. Organic, no pesticides or herbicides, still came out clean. There were a few worms but they only got the very tops. I gave a bunch to a neighbor and forgot to warn him... Hope he don't grill em!!
Sure y'all don't wanna come throw down????? I won't make you do much more than screw in a few screws... and EAT!
Short interruption here. I had a gorgeous old ornamental plum tree in the front of my house. Until last week, wehn I made the difficult decision to have it taken down. It had become so big that it was leaning way out over the street and impeding the passage of persons on the sidewalk (remember, I am a "city" girl). The tree was likely 40 to 50 years old, twisted into marvelouss squiggly shapes.
I agreed to take it down becuse it was inevitable that it needed to come down, and the sooner is is down, the sooner we can get anotehr shade tree growing. It will be very hot for the next few years!
I cried all day the tree came down. LOVED that tree, and it felt like murder to cut it down. But, life goes on.
Now the guy is out there grinding out the huge, convuluted stump. It's a mess! Will need to relandscape and it's going to cost bucks, but my house is almost 60 years old, so it DOES need new thigns.
