It loved my garden, and grew and grew, then turned brown, the full ears drying on the stalk. I harvested it last week and had two paper backs full of mahogany red ears.
But ears of corn take up a lot of space.
So I opted to save some whole ears for popping and began shelling the rest. Removing the kernels from the cob made by thumb sore. I put on gloves. It helped, somewhat.
After filling two jars, I called it quits. My thumb was quite red and beginning to blister.
Corn shelling will have to wait a few more days.
