Corny road

On to freezer corn....

Went to get a load of waste corn for cows. Love my curly mess of hair? Sweaty humid hair?

I love the farm roads even with the dust.

There are 2 tractors with corn wagons in that dust cloud.

I picked through one side of my wagon and pulled 160 ears out for suppers; son, neighbor and us. The rest will get shucked, cut off, blanched and froze. I'm going to freeze smaller amounts since it's just 3 of us. A full quart bag is too much. It may seem a waste of freezer bags but better that than wasting corn after all the work involved. Maybe I'll do some full for soups and stews and casseroles. Hmmm...


  1. You do live in faaaarrrrrm country, don't you? Love it. Makes me nostalgic for my childhood in Illinoisland.

  2. Sheesh-I remember those days in Hellinois. I had the curliest hair on earth!
    Lots o'corn shuckin in your immediate future.
    I am not envious.
    (except I probably will be come mid winter!!)
