We just shucked and 'de-cobbed' a half bushel of corn.

36 ears.
Silver King from a local farm.

Sweeter than sweet.

Shucked, de-silked, cut from cob, bagged, and frozen.

Took most of the afternoon, but worth it.

I wouldn't have been able to resist.

5. Where are you?

No local corn here yet (PA), but the real tomatoes are starting to come in plus I got some rare local strawberries at the farm stand.

6. Tomatoes already in PA?

My mom in Southern CA has had some for weeks, but mine here in central/coastal CA have set, but no sign of color yet.

7. Local farm stand

Is advertising "Lancaster tomatoes" but maybe there's a Lancaster Georgia? They're good, way better than the crappy tomatoes at the grocery but not quite up to true local summer tomatoes.

8. OK. Funny, my mom lives near Lancaster, CA

I have been buying organic cherry tomatoes from Trader Joe's, but they have no flavor. Look forward to my homegrown.

They get ripe in September. I'm in NH.
