We spent a long, cold winter without any sweet corn. Usually we fill the freezer with bags of corn and serve it at least once a week. Last year we failed to preserve Dad's favorite vegetable. First the freezer was full of blueberries and then the plants developed a disease.
After months without corn, we were motivated to get the corn from the field to the freezer. Monday afternoon my two youngest siblings put up about fifty pounds of sweet corn. Logan picked and husked the corn, while Naomi steamed, cut and bagged it. I was impressed, since they did most of the work themselves while everyone else was busy with other projects. Despite their dedication to their task, Logan and Naomi didn't object when their siblings helped preserve corn on Tuesday afternoon.
Husking corn can be a social event and one year involved worm eating.
