Putting Up Corn

We put up the last of our sweet corn yesterday.  I tried a different approach this year, and I have to say I loved it.

It all started when Abby was looking for something to do, and I said, “You could go pick a row of sweet corn to freeze.”  And that’s exactly what she did.  She picked, shucked, cooked, and bagged the corn and it only took an hour or so.

Amazing!  What a novel idea!  Instead of spending an entire day “doing corn,” we could attack it a little at a time and it wouldn’t seem like a big deal.  (Especially if someone else does all the work.  Lol.)  So that’s what we did.  Grandma Martha came over one day and we did a couple rows, the kids and I did a row or two another day, and by the end of the week we’d put up all the corn without breaking a sweat.

And now we should have enough sweet corn to last us through the winter.  What a good feeling.

Have a great day!
