{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}~ August 4, 2013

Here it is 9 o'clock on a Sunday evening, just enough time for a quick {phfr} post.

Our friend Farmer John grew 175 ears of corn for us.  Dave picked it Monday morning and we spent the rest of the day shucking it, cutting it from the ears, and putting it into bags to go into the freezer.  It made 16 gallon bags plus some left for eating off the cob during the week.  My goodness, I don't think I've ever tasted corn this good and fresh!  The weather was absolutely perfect, so we sat on the patio to work. We didn't even break a sweat. Dave thought the saying on the mug ("Keep Calm and Carry On") was suitable for the day's activities.  We did just have to hunker down and get the job done even when were tired of the sight of corn.  We'll be very happy to have it this winter, though!
 
Visit Like Mother, Like Daughter for more {phfr} enjoyment!
