Whole Lot O’ Corn

We harvested 49 ears of corn today, along with 8.5 lbs. of potatoes. We prepared and froze 5 quarts of the corn. We will be using some of the potatoes and Celesta’s beets to make borscht.

It has been cold and rainy the past week but tonight is mild and summer temperatures are to resume tomorrow. Now our baby lettuce, basil and carrots from our most recent planting can grow fast! We also trimmed the excess greenery off the tops of the tomato plants to expose the fruit to more sunlight. Hopefully they will start ripening up soon!

WOW! What a great looking... pile of corn.
