Squirrels - corn - dammit!
I just popped out to look at the garden, and my cool, bi-colored sweet corn is obviously ripe for eating - evidenced by 4 ears on the ground. The bad thing is that there's really only 1 more ear on the plants that I can pick today.
Some of the ears are only partially eaten. Would it be dumb to cook them anyway? Would the hot water kill any bacteria?
Dogs are staying out in the morning now!!
One another tack - tomatoes are ripening now. 2 Celebrity to pick for dinner tonight - yeah! And another 2 just called "Black" are starting to show a beautiful dusky color. They are supposed to be very large, sweet, slicing tomatos. I'm drooling on the keyboard now!
