|Shucking Corn, Kentucky Style|
This morning bright and early, we gathered, and shucked our corn to put in the freezer. We do things a little differently than most folks, I guess. For many years, we've been using a chop block, and hatchet to cut the ends off the corn, before we shuck it. For those of you, who may not know what a chop block is; it is a tree stump used to cut your kindling on.
We cleaned the chop block, washed the hatchet and started chopping. We can shuck bushels of corn in a very short time, this way. We put around 20 quart bags of corn in the freezer, then Bell, and Banana Peppers. I hope to start canning Green Beans by the end of the week, then Tomatoes early next week.
God has Blessed our little garden, and our lives, and we thank Him. I have been working for about 40 years, but have been off from work since September. I have really enjoyed my time off. I'm trying to get a few things caught up before I go back to work. I may not get another break for quite some time.
Blessings to you wherever you are, Trisha
