The past few weeks have been busy putting up preserves and canning for winter....I did a ton of corn. It was so funny, there was this huge uproar at my parent's house. My mom called a few weeks ago and told me to come get some corn since it wasn't ripe yet, but she knows how I like it just barely ripe...I asked her what was taking so long, corn everywhere else was ripe...she didn't know! She did tell me that dad had to replant, so it was probably late. So, we go and pick a few cobs..and I take them home...a few hours later I cook them up and am like, what the heck, this corn is totally ripe, it is just white! So, I called mom and said, "could this perhaps be silver or white corn?" Well, of course my dad flipped out and thought I was nuts...yadda yadda...a few hours later, everyone was more than convinced (after Dad thought about it) that sure enough, he did plant white corn! Too funny.
|All cut up...my hand was pretty sore after...|
|Ready for the freezer.|
|Done with tomatoes...as you can see, there were more to ripen -- and apples on the left to make into applesauce, got a couple bags out of those....|
|This is one of the first times he has fed himself a bottle! He will drink sippy cups np on his own, but the bottle? Heck no, Mommy or Daddy should do that!|
