sweet corn at the farmers market
i've mentioned before that i spent many a summer picking sweet corn during my younger years. every time i see fresh sweet corn - whether it be at the grocery store, the farmers market, or kitchen table - i always check it out to see if it is up to my standards. the corn was looking pretty good at saturday's farmers market, and i almost got some (but buckled at the $7/doz price).
a little song from my sweet corn days...
corn, sweet corn, no body picks it better,
no matter what the time, no matter what the weather.
the only reason that i've been born,
is to pick another load of that corn, sweet corn.
