"The valleys stand so thick with corn that they laugh and sing." Those were the words running through my mind...they seemed appropriate.
Yesterday was a beautiful fall day...the low lying morning cloud disappeared and we enjoyed autumn in all it's splendour.
The yellow corn barns are still selling sweet corn throughout the community...and I've been a regular customer!
We've enjoyed Mexican Tomato Chowder this week...with fresh tomatoes, fresh corn and fresh herbs, it is one of my favorite soups. (I posted the recipe on the MGCC blog.)
Many corn fields will be around for awhile yet. With our lack of 'heat units' over the summer, most cattle corn is not yet ready for harvest. We are having our fields opened up today...and plan to harvest the field closest to the mountain. The bear have been busy harvesting there for the past few weeks, so we need to get it off as soon as possible.
It's September 24th...I'm off to pull out the petunias and plant some winter pansies. That's it for my news of the day.
Enjoy your day!
