A Day of Sweet Corn

The Nebraska summer is officially upon us -- and with it, the yearly arrival of row after row of sweet corn. Can't you just smell the heat and sweetness of summer in these photos?! 

This week we loaded up the pickup with our annual harvest and spent a full day in teamwork and production -- moving the mountain from the garden into our freezers. 

 With the various traveling and touring we have planned in the coming weeks, we're so thankful for God's timing! The corn was ready during our final week at home. 

Many hands make light work, and that was certainly the case with this project. 

Sunshine smiles 

Abi and the kids were able to join us for part of the process. Charissa and Joanna were a big help with cool the corn after blanching and Asher helped husk. 

Finally, we moved the production into our garage which has far more space than our kitchen -- and is much easier for cleanup afterward. 

What a bountiful harvest! 

What's producing in your gardens these days?! 

" I will give you rain in its season, 
the land shall yield its produce, 
and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit."
Lev 26:4
