"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."

First corn picking

First of all, we are all very thankful for the rain that we got last night, as small of an amount as it was.  It was much needed and much appreciated!

Today we picked and froze the first of our sweet corn.

First we cut off a small portion of the top and bottom and took most of the outer layers of husk off.

Then, we cook the corn.

We take the corn out after a certain amount of time and cool it down in cold water.

Then we husk it the rest of the way.  We found that if you do it this way, the silk is easier to get off.

Cooling it more.

Lastly, we use a grater-tool to get the kernels off, and then we put it into boxes or bags and froze it.  It is all ready for some delicious baked corn.
