Sweet corn on the way


The sweet corn tassels two weeks ago were full of color!  Matt snapped off a few of the first fat ears this morning, so we'll have some good summer snacking this weekend at the markets!  We are thankful that we have irrigation for our sweet corn crop, and our hearts go out to all the farmers affected by severe drought this year.  When food prices increase due to the drought, it is not worth it to complain, as we are lucky that there is anything on the shelf at all, considering the lack of rain.   Seeing what it takes to grow just a small patch of sweet corn makes it hard to comprehend the energy that goes into putting out the tens of millions of acres of crops grown nationwide! 

I haven't been posting as much as I would like on the blog lately.  I have been putting pictures on to facebook from our entire farm photo collection (all years!) so take a look at that for more photos.  Thanks for reading, more to come!
