The kids and I start picking in the 20x20 block.
The harvested ears
What was left after cleaning them and discarding those that were too bug infested, not pollinated well , or just nasty looking. The chickens will eat the ears that we didn't want.
The final score.... 16 bags of corn cut off the cob, ready to go into Danielle's casseroles.
There are still some late arrival ears in the patch so we may get a bit more but I'm not counting on much more this year. At least we found out that it is possible to grow sweet corn here. It just has to happen a LOT earlier than in Illinois.
