I learned a good way to process corn, cut the stalk end just where you feel the kornels, cut the other end where you feel the corn fill out, microwave the corn for 2.5 minutes on high for 5 ears, strip the husk off which if you cut it right is real easy, then take a tee towel and rub the ears, the silk will completely come off and then process however you want,
if you are eating it right away double the microwave time and it comes out perfect
.. this sounds borderline ****ographic..🤔😆😁

well, i had to pull up one dead tomato plant, and on green pepper plant, and 3 ferns...

lousy year for me, way too much damned rain, or cloudy days.. couldn;t be any happier i did not go all the way out spending money this year, as in the past years.

I started a vegetable garden in my balcony. They're pretty much all dying. My serrano peppers and tomatoes are the only ones that look like they're going to make it. I cheaped out on the soil next time I'll put a little more effort into that aspect of it. This was my first try so it's all good.

Friday we got 20 dozen ears of corn for my daughter.Worked it up and had 80 pints bags,and 8 quart bags.My sis in law and me went ot Candor,NC to Carter Farms and bought it.12 bucks a bag ,with 5 dozen in each bag.
We stopped at a few roadside produce stands and they had the same corn for 5 bucks a dozen.Quite a markup...50 bucks for a bushel of peachs….ouch!High priced suckers

Produce here is expensive too......but everything is also trucked in......sack of peppers is $24.95 plus a fee for roasting it.......which comes to around $30.00 after tax and freezer bags to process it.

my garden went kaput. all i have left is the basil and parsley, and the Italian green peppers, and planted flowers.

i had to pull up the eggplant, it only had like 4 flowers after all these weeks.

so it was useless wasting water on it.

i have absolutely no idea why the garden crapped out this year.
