Iowa Sweet Corn
We had a bit more interesting journey out to the farm due to the huge road construction project on their road. We had to use the dirt road, go through a “road closed” sign, and bottomed out on some ungraded gravel, but we got there.
They plant it rows right in the field with the tractor and 12-row planter. And, while they did try to make me promise to remind them not to plant it again next year-I have a hard time seeing the tradition die quite yet. There is still nothing quite like eating sweet corn for lunch that was picked from the field that morning.
I know it is going to taste really great come February when we grab a bag out of the freezer and can have a bit of that sweet corn taste in the middle of winter.
