|They saved the silk and any wiggly worms to play with. Poor wormies.|
All summer, the children have come running when I yelled for them to husk the corn. I bought a dozen ears, occasionally two dozen.
Usually there were a few ears left over and that's how I preserved my corn this year! I didn't buy a big batch, I just cut it off here and there as we had extra ears. I got that tip from my mom.
Sometimes I grilled the corn if it was terribly hot, but other times I boiled it. I've got jars of both, down in the freezer. I don't actually know how much is down there, but I need to organize the freezer a bit before we get our eighth of beef in November.
I should tell you about these black chairs, too. Our neighbor set them out for the trash this spring because he was cleaning up his weedy, neglected back yard and the chairs were mossy with 1970s cushions. I'm guessing that was his reasoning, anyway, because neither party has acknowledged to the other that we now have these nice sturdy chairs.
My husband painted the chairs black with paint we had on hand, and I stalked the mall sales until I got 2 reversible cushions on sale from the Bon-Ton for $60 total. They are all-weather cushions, which means the rain doesn't hurt them. That's handy, since our backyard can get quite neglected too. Maybe it's the neighborhood theme?
