Yesterday we picked 317 ears of corn and cut off the cob and put in Freezer, Hope that will carry us thru the winter.

I'm with Dave on this one. Ours is only 10" high right now.

And you should be given a point for using the "W" word, heck summer just began 4 day's ago. :laughingteeth:

Congrats though! You must have a green thumb and some mighty fine soil. :thumbs:

Dale, you make me jealous.

Closest thing to sweet corn around here now is import stuff or the super early stuff that tastes like cardboard.

Mine is thigh high and growing. Soon I'll have to put up my anti coon fencing.

Good deal Dale, :thumbs: I love our fresh frozen corn out of the freezer, almost as tasty as fresh picked.

My wife started last year freezing it on the cob. She blanches it for only 1 minute, then shucks it and into a freezer bag. We only do enough each day to cover all the selves in our freezers. so they freeze quickly. Ours turned out very well and crisp.

I couldn't wait, so I pulled 7 ears fro dinner last night. Even early, it was sweet as sugar! Hoping it will fill out more though. Kernels kind of small yet.
