Corn Time Again
Michael went out last night to pick corn. The picture above is what he brought into me. That is most of what was left out there. There are still a few ears to ripen here or there. We had a good corn year. Thank you Lord!!!! This corn is the sweetest most tender corn we have ever tasted. Everyone that has tasted it said the same thing. I want to grow some open pollinated corn next year, but we will also grow some more of this stuff.
There are still lots of tomatoes on the vine out there to ripen. Next year, I think one cherry tomato plant will be plenty. I have given those things away like crazy, we eat them like crazy and still they threaten to take over my kitchen. =)
I had to pick my big pumpkins and my 2 little pie pumpkins. Those little gray bugs are invading the vines and are all over the fruit. We have a couple more green pumpkins out there, but I wonder if they are even going to ripen with the damage those bugs are doing.
We have gotten some rain in the last few days. It had been pretty dry for a bit. As I was walking back up from milking this morning, I noticed where we had bushhogged down the weeds that lots of little weed plants are pushing through the soil. I guess even the weeds were very thirsty.
Well, I need to get ready to start my corn day. I still have tomatoes to do as well. Praise the Lord from whom all blessings flow. He is the Lord of the harvest.
