Arent' they pretty? I swear I could pick a pound of them, close my eyes and turn around, and there'd be another batch on the vines already! it's crazy! We've eaten a lot and today I blanched and froze a few bags for the winter.
The other amazing thing is this CORN! I grew corn! it's called Ruby Queen and it's red (of course). I think I already mentioned that with all the rain and wind, the stalks got blown flat to the ground, and had to be reset, with fingers crossed. Well it worked! and finally we picked two ears and ate them - fantastic! I'll tell you, it's not easy to know when corn is ready! if we had a whole field of it, we'd just pick an ear periodically and check, but we didn't want to waste any. We picked one ear too early and that made us gun shy to pick more and risk another wasted ear. Finally though, it's ready! We might be eating corn every day for a week now! I can think of worse things!
