Last of this year's sweet corn
I don't have much to write about so I am blogging about my sweet corn. (Yawn) I decided to go out today and see what was left and pick it. And since it was getting pretty hard, I cut it off the ears and will freeze it. My grandmother and mom also picked a lot out of that small patch, so we have all had lots of good corn lately.
I would post some pictures of the crops, but I don't want to start anybody to crying and feeling sorry for me. It is a totally different picture from last month about this time. The great dryland corn experiment is dead. Literally. And the milo is in pretty sad shape. 3 weeks of 95 degree temps and wind has really zapped things.
The milk hauling is picking up a little, and Dawson is driving some this weekend. So I will get a couple of days off I hope.
