I love lots of quiet!
The woods sound especially wonderful to kids.
corn varieties for freezing on the cob
Years ago, I grew corn that had a thin pencil cob and was intended for freezing the corn on the cob. I think it was Kandy Stick. It was delicious; I can't find the seeds anymore.
"Corn Bred in all Shapes and Sizes. Walton Galinat has developed thousands of varieties, from finger-size to two-foot-long ears. By Phyllis Hanes, Special to The Christian Science Monitor SEPTEMBER 20, 1989
"WALTHAM, MASS. — A FEW years ago, Walton C. Galinat invented a square ear of corn that won't roll around on your dinner plate. Butter doesn't slide off it, and it stacks neatly in freezer or refrigerator. But Dr. Galinat never intended this particular variety to be an ideal edible. He raised square corn only for research. It is his reconstruction of a missing link in corn's ancient, wild ancestor, teosinte. Dr. Galinat is one of the world's foremost authorities on the evolution of corn. He has bred more than 30,000 pedigrees of the plant. One important result of his research is the discovery of traits from earlier corn that can be bred into modern varieties to make them more useful. He also breeds corn for tenderness, long-lasting sweetness, and early maturity."
Kathy, sounds like you have a great place to live.
Yesterday, I pruned my Apricot tree. Took off all the very low branches, all the crossing branches, and opened the center for light.
Today, I put the last of my new seeds in tightly sealed, dry canning bottles, and put them in the freezer.
Years ago I bought some Chestnuts from a grocery store, but didn't like the taste at all. Perhaps I didn't bake them long enough.
I can understand that, Randall, I grew up in the post war poverty. I still try very hard not to waste food, but I´ve stopped eating leftovers like I was taught. It causes weight problems.
Daniel, you've got me curious. I'm not sure if I know what chestnuts even taste like. They're surely not the same as the water chestnuts in chop suey, etc.? I'll have to google both of them when I'm done here. In any case, I'm glad to see you're getting into planting nut trees.
Chris, my arugula comes up voluntarily in my garden (since it usually goes to seed). I hate to see it go to waste, and it is pretty. So I do mix it in my salads, but still, it's too strong for me to really enjoy. I'm one of those persons that will drink milk that's soured just so not to dump it down the drain! Such a product of "the great depression" parents!
