The hills are alive with the sound of corn!

Posted by PicasaIt's time for Edelweiss -our first white variety of the summer.  And according to the Doris kids, this new to us variety (our first time growing it) is  delicious!  (All 3 are on their third cob while I type this)  If sweet corn is one of your "Favourite Things" drop by the farm this week.

Peter is now picking in our second planting of the year and it's going much better.  We should have corn available daily now for the next couple of weeks. 

On another farming note, Claire and Maggie had a great start to their show season with their Simmental 4-H calves at the Peterborough Exhibition on Sunday.  Next up is the Peterborough County 4-H Achievement Day at the Norwood Fairgrounds on Monday, August 22.  Looks like the girls may be exhibiting some of their sweet corn for their Fieldcrops club too.


  1. Great blog Carolyn. How did C & M do at the Ex showing?

  2. Thanks Fred! All 4 kids did well at the Ex and came home with ribbons (and money!) for their crafts, baking, vegetables and ohotography (Claire).

    The calves and girls also did well! Claire won her showmanship class and the judge commented on the fact that even though her calf ran away as she entered the ring she stuck to it. Maggie also did well for her first showing.
