Corny Days

Our friends, the Snyders, grow the best sweet corn! Mark and the kids have spent 5 early mornings at the Snyder's farm this past week helping them harvest their acres of corn. (I have spent each afternoon washing muddy and rain-soaked clothes!) The fresh corn has been delicious, and we ate some almost every meal last week. I don't get tired of corn on the cob!

Yesterday we spent the morning putting up approximately 4 and 1/2 bushels of corn for the freezer, and I thought I'd share some pictures. It's a good feeling to know the freezer is stocked with corn and that we will be able to enjoy it all winter long. I am grateful that the Snyders are so generous and allow us to help with the harvest.

The picture of Mark was taken in front of his corn, not the Snyder's corn. I thought about sending a camera on the corn-picking mornings, but with as much rain as we've been getting, the camera would probably have been ruined. Mark's garden has done very well this year. I think all the rain has helped! We've already been blessed with a wide variety of fresh produce this summer.

If you have a garden, I hope that it has also been producing well. If you need any cucumbers, come and get them! We have an abundance of cucumbers---I guess I could make pickles!
Oh, and if you want to hear lots of corny jokes, just ask one of the kids!

Beautiful veggies! Wish I were close enough to have some of those cucumbers & some of the tomatoes too!
