I'm no farmer

I know that this has nothing to do with a baby, but I think it merits a blog post anyway. Among other things, I planted corn this year in our garden. I intended to yield enough corn to freeze a whole bunch of corn-off-the-cob for the coming months. Well, that's definitely not going to happen.

Here is a picture of the "harvest." Pretty hilarious, huh? (Notice that the corn on the left is full-sized, and they get smaller and smaller and smaller...)

In case you need a closer picture, here is my pickle-nosed corn, and then a picture of my mini-corn.

Because I was bored today, I decided to blanche and bag the corn anyway. All that work for 1/2 a bag of corn! As a side note, the corn was starchy, gross, and inedible. It ended up in the garbage. On the bright side, at least it gave me something to do for 45 minutes!

Yeah, I definitely won't be growing corn again. It's cheap enough at Wal-mart.

Lol, that is awesome! Ha ha! At least you got 1/2 a bag out of it all. That's one side for a meal! ;)

yeah, but that bag of corn ended up in the trash anyway cuz it was NASTY.

Note to self, when starting our garden next year, corn is right out... You're right about Walmart though, they were 10 for a buck last week!

I love your corn! You should sell it on eBay. I'm sure you could think of someone it looks like.

We decided that this year as well. All the effort wasn't worth the couple of ears of corn..... Makes you appreciate the farmers, huh? ;)
