Corn shucking 2011
Corn shucking 2012.
Wow! Now we see how much they've grown in a year. Again, they were good little helpers.
After shucking, cleaning, cutting, and cooking corn we ended up with 22 quarts in the freezer. We think that's really good considering the weather we've been having this summer.
Corn took us from 7:15 AM picking time to 5:00 PM freezing time. I then made a little dinner of bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches with some fresh corn on the cob. There would be no rest for us. After that, we made 14 pints of chili sauce. The blacksmith then made 4 pounds of deer jerky. Ah to lay in bed and smell jerky cooking all night! However I really think I will be tired enough to sleep right through it!
