Countdown to Corn!

Celebrating the 4th of July in our own yard ... with tractors and blankets and Oscar Meyer!
And dirt :)
And chocolate :)

Mmmmm, smores!
But no more of those for a while. This princess lost 2 teeth last night!

Taking a Popsicle break. (I really should buy stock in those things)

Hooking up the picker. Yep, it's that time, sweet corn!

We are so blessed to have the crop on our place this year.
We'll start picking in the back where the more mature stalks are tasseled out.

Or maybe it's melons you like! They're looking awesome too!

Looks like you guys had a great time on the 4th. I love those "lazy days of summer"...not so lazy around your place with corn and melons though.
Sign us up for the melons...and the corn,too. Good eating!!

Ah dirt. Good to see a kid getting to play in it.

How tall is that corn? I know in PA or NY they were happy if corn was knee high by the 4th of July. (and it rhymes as well).

I've discovered what happens when you let the water boil out of your pot when cooking dogs - funny noises start and the pot gets sorta black inside and the dogs get a bit crisp to boot.

Seems like ya'll just finished picking corn! Time flies, huh? I sure wish I had some of that wonderful corn you gave us last year when we came through town. We may have to make a special trip!!!
