Could someone please tell the sweet corn that it’s August now???

We think we speak for everyone when we say,
“For crying out loud…could we just get ON WITH THIS already???”

We’ve tried to be patient, as have you, but this is enough to test the mettle of even the most resilient among us!

We typically expect corn to begin around the 25th of July.

Did you catch that word?   “Typically”

As you may remember, this past spring was anything but “typical”!

Although…we can’t blame the tardiness of the sweet corn entirely on the spring.  (Our first patch was actually planted in very good time).  The fact that June and July were so uncharacteristically cool seems to have contributed much more to the situation.

There are no ifs, ands or buts about it.  Corn needs heat!

So now that you have our excuses…what’s the prediction?

Soon!  Very soon!!

2017’s First Pick…just enough for dinner


We had our first taste last night.
The verdict…sadly…not quite yet.  Although the cobs look fairly good, once they were cooked, it was pretty clear that they were not quite mature.

With the sun shining today and forecast for through the week (mostly…) we SHOULD be good to go for the weekend.  We sure hope so anyway!  Could you imagine the August long weekend without corn?

No, neither could we!

Thank you for your patience and understanding.  We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again…
“Our customers are the BEST!”

In the meantime, you’ve still got to eat!  Check out our ‘Featured on the Stand‘ page to see what IS ready for your table.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Robert, Shannon & The Family.
