Adios, Mr. Cornfield

This year's corn crop is done. We had two, sweet yellow varieties growing on eight stalks.

The final tally is 14 ears, compared to I think 6 last year, so that's a success.

We don't eat it every day so we still have some of the harvest in the fridge waiting to cook.

It's time to pull up the dried-up stalks, thank God for our harvest, and start eating.

I was going to pull up our two zucchini plants also but then I saw this.

They're not the prettiest looking specimens right now but since I picked this beautiful squash, I'll let them go another week or two to see if I get another one.
