On Tuesday afternoon we hopped in the car and drove a few miles north of us and stopped at this farm to pick corn. U-pick 4 for a $1. Part of the sign looks like it washed off but we got the gist of what they wanted us to know.
We found 4 ears we thought looked good and put our $1.00 in the metal box and headed back home.
There’s a story behind me having to take a photo of the photo of me at the corn field. Dear mistakenly took a video of me instead of a photo and my computer wouldn’t let me make it into a photo and I couldn’t upload the video, either. Hmmm.
We cooked 2 ears of corn as soon as we got home and boy was it good and sweet. I called it dessert, delicious. We’ll remember this farm next year and enjoy fresh corn again.
Quote of the day from Sprugeon:
“The way to do a great deal, is to keep on doing a little. The way to do nothing at all is to be continually resolving that you will do everything.”
Encouragement of the day:
If you are finding it hard to get started on a task, try setting a timer for 15 minutes and tell yourself to get after that task for at least 15 minutes. You’ll be surprised all you can get done in that short amount of time and maybe it will be enough motivation to continue.
Have a great 9-19-19!

Did you notice that all the days of this week read the same left to right as right to left?
Lovely corn Ellen!
Yummy! You guys are adorable!
…$3 a dozen is about the going price here.
Fresh sweet corn is a lot like dessert, isn’t it! Yummy.
I love pick your own farms, Ellen. I also love there are still places where trust is valued. Fresh summer corn, what could be tastier?
Nothing like a good ear of corn-on-the-cob in the summertime (or nearly autumn time 😉 )! Yum!!
Those words from Spurgeon are so, so true. (Ask me how I know.) Good advice there too!
I will be joining you later today in eating corn on the cob. Mine wasn’t hand picked but did come from the local farm shop. Nothing nicer. Mine was slightly more pricey than yours! B x
The best…hand-picked, fresh-from-the-field sweet corn! We are still enjoying local Chilliwack corn here as well! Love their sign. 🙂 Good quote by Spurgeon too.
What a blessing that place is. The price for corn here is much higher. ☺ I like their sign and though there are words missing, I am in agreement with it. Ha!
Fresh corn sure is good!!!
Most of the corn grown around where I live are is feed for the animals.
Love your "Quote of the day from C H Spurgeon": “The way to do a great deal, is to keep on doing a little. The way to do nothing at all is to be continually resolving that you will do everything.” And what a lovely way to enjoy corn, from field to plate
What fun picking fresh corn and even more eating the sweetness. I love the photos and the timer Idea!😄🥰👍
