Beginning Harvest

Over a hundred ears of corn, which I put up in the freezer (9 quarts).  Still a lot more out there if the deer or racoons don't get it first.

You have been a busy lady putting up all of that corn. I don't think there is any vegetable better then fresh corn. Are you making lots of your delicious squash casserole? We have a lot of hungry deer and raccoons here also.
What we don't have around here are all of those adorable helpers. I sure wish I could have those adorable helpers come to my house. What teeth do you use to eat corn-on-the-cob, Travis?

Do you take the corn off the husk and then freeze it? Can you dry out the corn and then use it for feed? You know you can deep fry the squash flowers with some cheese in the middle of them and it is SOOOOO good. you pay about 5 dollars for a small basket of squash flowers around here. The kids look so cute. Meradeth's front teeth are on the verge of falling out.

I have been dicing the squash and cooking it in the pan w/onion, bacon, and a little soy sause.

Travis says, "I use my side teeth, Grandmother, to eat corn on the cob."

I blanch the corn on cob, then immediately put it ice water to stop the cooking, and then cut the kernels off the cob.

You would feed the farm animals field corn, not sweet corn.
Those cheesy squash flowers sound good.
I think the kids are so adorable w/there two front teeth gone.

"Well, I would, Granddaddy, but they might be rotten by the time they get to you." says Kaleb.
