    Sweet Corn

    It is that time of the year when sweet corn is starting to come out of the fields. Anybody buy some this week or planning to this week?

    I bought half a dozen Tuesday night and I noticed that 2 were a little premature but the other 4 were pretty good.

    The season always catches me off guard, but there isn't much that can beat fresh sweet corn

    Re: Sweet Corn

    I just picked up some this morning that was pretty good (certainly wasn't Iowa corn though).. It was from a farm south of Gardner, KS...

    Re: Sweet Corn

    Bought some from a stand in CR last Friday, they said it was grown in manchester, it was not ready to be picked yet. I am going to wait to buy more till knights brings out their stands.

    Had it all week out of my patch.
