A Job Well Done

We picked 6 or 7 bushels of sweet corn to do today.
Since the heat index was about 110 degrees today, we spread a sheet in the dining room and did our shucking inside.

We did mounds and mounds of corn.

I had 3 pots boiling on my 6-burner cooktop all afternoon.

Meagan cut most of the corn off the ears with a little help from me at the end of the day. We ended up with 20-5 cup bags. That was a lot of work done by 4 uncomplaining little girls--Laura, Kara, Leah, and Nanna. Erin and Heather have been gone to Youth Conference at the First Baptist Church of Hammond this week, so they missed all the fun. I went to town tonight and got ice cream treats for all the hard-working little girls and us big ones too. How does a Frog Spit Ice Cream Bar sound? It's vanilla ice cream covered with lime sherbet on a stick. Sounded gross enough for any kid to love. Frog spit! Yuck!
