link from an earlier post explains it better.
Here is some of the corn that is ready to pick! If you look close enough you will notice the evil grasshopper sitting there just waiting to eat my corn!
So my dreams of eating fresh corn straight from the garden have actually come true!
So far only a couple looked ready to pick so here they are husked, trimmed and ready to go in the boiling water.
The trick to cooking corn is not to over cook it. You only need to keep in the boiling water for no more than a minute.
We had to split them in half and share since only two were ready to pick. My son was privileged to be the first taste tester. Don't mind his mop head. He is getting a haircut this week from his favorite hairdresser (that would be me!).
He loves it! Said it was the best corn he has ever eaten! What a Corney smile (literally) :-)
I had to agree with him about it being the best corn he had ever eaten. It was deeelish! Nothing beats fresh corn straight from the garden.
here is a close up pic of the squash plants at the base of the corn stalks. I wonder how many pumpkins we will have this fall :-)
