Bountiful Harvest By First-Rate Suburban Transplant Farmer–Not

Our first attempt at planting heirloom corn in heavy clay soil was, let’s say, less than stellar. But I wasn’t going to let that get me down. A small bit is better than nothing. So today I spent the last few hours shuckin’ corn. It’s a little harder than I though and I have these blisters on my thumbs but really homemade popcorn and cornmeal is sort of nice–now I have to learn how to put the grain grinder thing together.
