Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: ... by raccoon hands. The electric fence has been working, and we have our first homegrown sweet corn in years! The last two years, coons and possums got it ALL. This year, no evidence of any furry marauders.

I missed this series somehow. Love this one of the corn. I have fixed it like gilg72 was talking about and I love it that way. Makes silking so easy. Happy eating!

Thanks, Randall! We're eating it each day, and I will soon pick the rest to put in the freezer.

Thanks, Patty! I wanted something a bit more than just an ear of corn for this photo, so I peeled back the top of the husk and silk while the ear was still on the stalk, and got this shot.

Thank you for commenting, Sharon and Gil! I haven't tried fixing it the way you say, Gil; will have to do that and see how it compares with husking and boiling. I do use the microwave to reheat already-cooked ears.

That looks very delicious Kathy. I'm at home alone today, and have to fix my own lunch.
I know there are some Ears of Corn in the Fridge. I'm gonna throw one in the Micorwave when I fix my lunch.

Did you know you can just throw an ear of Corn in there for about 5 mins and then you can clear off the husks real easy. Yum, very tasty also.

You just have to cut the back end of the cob and it peels right off. Or you can cut that off before the Microwaving.

Great detail in this close up, Kathy.
Not to mention that it is a great looking
ear of corn. Makes me hungry for one.

Thank you, James and Peter! Some of the critters who ate them the last two years paid for it with their lives. But it was like bailing the ocean so far as I was concerned.

Thank you, Shirley! You're right; there is nothing like really fresh corn on or off the cob! The coons and possums know this, too; thus the electric fence.

Yum! Love fresh corn - Love to cut it off cob - slicing just tips of kernels - then turn backside of knife and scrape corn off the cob - makes wonderful creamy corn. And to get it straight from the field and cook it the same day would be wonderful! Enjoy! Thanks for sharing your great shot and making all of our mouths water.
