I picked the first few ears of corn from the backyard this morning! Ooooh I’m excited. Couldn’t quite believe that they were done and unharmed so I opened one fully and took some leaves off the husk of the others. Look how pretty they are on the bale of hay. Looks like we’re on a real farm and everything.
Of course, we’re not on a farm. Our neighbor’s over that fence behind the cornstalks. Still, we have a nice little plot going and it’ll continue to produce corn for weeks to come. My in-laws are coming over today so my husband has asked that I wait to eat the corn. That way we can share with them. Waiting’s hard. I’m sure they’ll be delicious!
We’re also growing carrots, onions, garlic, watermelon and potatoes. The carrots are yummy… but don’t last long enough to take a photo. Even if I run, by the time I get the camera there’s only a carrot top left. Fresh carrots are sweet! The rest of the foods aren’t yet ready. I’ll keep you updated. 🙂
