We have Sweet Corn

Not to eat yet but.....there are ears on the corn stalks and tassels, so it is just a matter of time.

The racoons have not gotten it yet, which may be due to the fact that the garden is at one end of the horse pasture, which is nicely enclosed by 4 strands of electric fence.

However, I will be keeping an eye on it and the tomatoes in the coming weeks.

And I am leaving work early. Seems I managed to loose the front license plate on my durango, and the nice police officer gave me until tomorrow to replace it:) So off to the license bureau I go.
Have a great day

We live for fresh corn from the field in our area. My favorite way of cooking it is to soak the corn, husk and all, for about 30 minutes and place on the BBQ grill. I usually cook it for about 20 - 30 minutes, rotating it periodically. The wet husk/silk steams the corn but retains the flavor. You don't even need butter, but it's good with fresh herb butter. Yummy!

The sweet corn is especially sweet this year. And keeping an eye on the critters that seem to devour the veggies and actually preventing them from doing so are 2 different things --right? So please tell me how to keep those little rascals from eating everything in sight!!!!!!

Yes!! You have corn growing. I'm sure it is a great feeling. Glad to see that your garden will pay for you. My garden is pitiful. We had stuff growing but the grasshoppers were eating the plants faster than they had a chance. They ate my pretty rose bushes too. AAAHHH!!
Oh well, glad to see your garden is working out!! I've missed a lot of your blog this summer. Looks like you have had a fun busy summer. Have a great day!!

So jealous of your corn. My garden is not big enough to have a corn crop.

I look forward to sweet corn almost as much as strawberry season, and it's here as well!! :)

Things are looking busy at your place, as usual.
Have a blessed tomorrow
