Corn is up

72 ears of corn, yield, 48 pints of canned corn and 2 1/2 qts of frozen corn. Been a busy but productive day :)

Good job. Corn has been finished here for about 2 months.

Yes it is, and so much better than the stuff you get at the supermarket. Wifey was down sick most of the weekend so a lot of the work fell to me to get the corn up, it had been sitting in our spare fridge for a couple weeks and didn't want to see it go bad.

I would trade some of our growing season for some of your cooler weather.

Been in the low to mid 90s in Medford where I am working most of the time but on the coast in Brookings the highs have been in the comfortable 60s to 70s. :)
