Wednesday is grocery store flyer day, and I’m checking the ads for the sales. And they have listed local corn 6 ears for $1. That price isn’t even that unusual, and I feel so sorry for the corn farmers.
Corn is an easy crop to grow, but each plant only yields one ear of corn. What?? Did you know that? AND you have to plant more than one plant so they can cross-pollinate. AND it takes forever for the stupid ears to ripen AND the ants really like to get in there and eat the ears.
Luckily, none of my kids like corn. J and I can hog the two ears that are growing, and hope that no one else in the family ever develops a taste for home-grown corn!
