We didn't notice until noon that the corn was ready to be harvested, so it was a rush to get ready to leave by 5:00. Peter used an old door to make the "corn" sign, and Jim helped him anchor it to the top of the pick up truck. Jonathan picked, and Andrew and David did the husking. I was given the extra ears to can.
Our family prefers frozen corn over canned corn, but we were out of freezer bags so we canned this batch. Besides, the boys love homemade corn chowder, and the recipe calls for canned corn with the liquid. This works great for the soup.
I thought I would also include some great photos that Andrew took tonight ... He has quite a knack in capturing some very nice scenery. I'm still amazed that it's September already, but here in the Turtle Mountains there is definitely fall in the air.
Our view looking past the raspberry bushes to the left and towards the woods.
Looking into the big field where the Appleseed weekend was held. There is one lone tree on the top of the hill that has turned yellow already, but it's a bit hard to see when the photo is small.
Andrew also created the header for this blog. He does a great job!
