I found such a simple way over the years to take the corn off the cob easy and fast.  I put the washed corn in the middle of a bundt pan and then take a knife and cut off the corn.  All the corn falls into the pan.  Makes processing 50 ears of corn go fast.

I froze quite a bit of corn yesterday but we decided to go back and get 30 more.  You just can't beat 10 ears of corn for a dollar!  

You can go here if you want to see how I freeze corn.  This corn was very sweet so I didn't put it so much sugar this time



How is it going in your neck of the woods?

CORN!

We stopped at a roadside stand last night on our ride and were so excited to find Ears of Corn for 10/$1.00!  We bought 50 ears.  Whoo hoo!  We shucked them last night and now today I'm going to freeze corn for this coming winter.  We'll have some for dinner too!  

You know I've seen corn here from 3/$1.00 to .50 each.  What's the price of corn in your area?

So, I got busy and weeded some of the garden last night.  I've been neglecting it because you see first it was too hot then it was too wet.   I have so many excuses.  

If you are ever bored weed you garden but know when to stop...those weeds will be there tomorrow.  I'm 20 years older than my mind thinks I am.  The body knows.  The knees ..oh the knees.

Look at the flowers, corn, and zinnias!  Everything is coming up so great.  I keep on trying to remember that I planted the week after Memorial weekend this year.  I will get a harvest like other people in the neighborhood..it just takes time.  I get so jealous.

Tomatoes are ripening!  They are small but we already have had some great tomato sandwiches!  I always make sure to buy some early ripening tomato plants.  Nothing makes me happier than to see a ripe tomato as soon as possible!

It rained and was cold all day yesterday plus we had a stranger in the house for most of the day.  A hardworking stranger, I might add, installing our bathtub.  Really, there was basically nothing to do except get caught up on a few sewing projects.  At times I wondered where I could go because the bathroom we were having worked on is the only one we have.  One time, I flew 10 minutes away to my daughters house.   All of sudden I just disappeared, my husband said ha ha!  

We were so thankful that nothing went wrong and the bathtub went in without a problem. I can handle a boring day for a new bathtub!  He left last night with a bag of new onions from our garden.  He was impressed with their size and wanted to know how to grow them like that.  I love that!    

Dry walling will be done today but it promises to be bright and sunny so I can keep disappear to the garden.
