The Start of a Good Harvest
An afternoon stroll through the corn field revealed a pleasant surprise: a first harvest. My husband and I gathered in two five gallon buckets of fresh sweet corn! Together at the picnic table we shucked and scrubbed the plumb tender ears before giving them a good salt water soak (to remove all silks and bugs).
The herd enjoyed nibbling the husks and silks from today's harvest; a welcome treat in this terrible heat!
The first harvest is cleaned and packaged- into the freezer for delicious summer eating...several more ears remain in the field until they plump just right. I have to say...this was the start of a pretty good harvest!
