I know its been a while and I promised to post the very next day...... But life keeps getting in the way!
Not being at the homestead for 5 days in a row doesn't leave me much time to post.
Anyway, I worked on two projects yesterday...One for me and one for the worms.
This past week-end I got 52 ears of Silver Queen corn and we roasted 15 ears and had them with dinner the last few nights. Terri said that they were so sweet that they could be desert! Yesterday I cut the corn from the remaining ears and blanched it. I used one of my favorite tools to get it ready for the freezer. Vacuum sealer! I made up 11 bags (Two cups of corn per) and placed the bags into the freezer to freeze over night. There was to much water in the corn and the bags would not seal. So the first thing this morning I sealed the bags and put them away for later use this winter.
And other project was a Worm Smoothie! All the garden produce that get past ripe (you know all those tomato's, cucumbers that hide deep in the bed!) get run through the food processor and the worms love it! Nothing go's to waste!
The next post will be a Melon update! Lots to show you!
Until then , be good (and if you can't be good, have fun!)
