U-Pick Corn

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!

  1. Nothing like a good ear of corn-on-the-cob in the summertime (or nearly autumn time ๐Ÿ˜‰ )! Yum!!

    Those words from Spurgeon are so, so true. (Ask me how I know.) Good advice there too!

  2. I will be joining you later today in eating corn on the cob. Mine wasnโ€™t hand picked but did come from the local farm shop. Nothing nicer. Mine was slightly more pricey than yours! B x

  3. The best…hand-picked, fresh-from-the-field sweet corn! We are still enjoying local Chilliwack corn here as well! Love their sign. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good quote by Spurgeon too.

  4. What a blessing that place is. The price for corn here is much higher. โ˜บ I like their sign and though there are words missing, I am in agreement with it. Ha!

  5. Love your "Quote of the day from C H Spurgeon": โ€œThe 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.โ€ And what a lovely way to enjoy corn, from field to plate
