I sure do miss eating corn. I love grilled corn on the cob. It's a damn shame that our government has let agri businesses like Monsanto turn our good food into poisons.

I just did it as a silly contest entry and never though it would sale but it has sold quite a bit. One person got 8 yards of it. Thank you for including it in your daughters quilt.

My daughter bought some of this I decided I needed another yard for the FFA quilt I am doing for her.
BTW! Update, I bought some heritage corn seed and my daughter has planted them. Hopeing for some good ole corn this year. I will be moving before the corn could mature and she offered to plant them for us.

I recently had someone buy 4 yards of this on silk. Corn silk, lol I really hope she shares photos of what she makes with it. Thanks for sharing your time Charlotte. I appreciate it's value.
LOL but bright, witty, funny and so cute for aprons and kitchen accents... Or an outhouse... ( if you catch my meaning--not a reflection of your design, just thinking of a good use for all those cobs). There are still people in the South that have 'em. âœ¿;-) Charldiaâœ¿
I figured as much. I am going to plant a patch of a dozen plants this year and hope the squirrells are happy with just ruining the tomatos. There always seems to be plenty of tomatos. I love them hot out of the garden with some sea salt. I mostly eat them raw and eat the whole tomatoe when I cut into it. However tomatos are one of the few vegatables that maintain some of it nutricional value when cooked. Most fruits and vegatables loose all their nutricional value when cooked. With the exception of the fiber. Even tomatos processed into ketchup still have value. Garlic and peppers do too but I still eat them raw most of the time.
You won't find any heirloom corn on the cob in a farmer's market in March.
The natural stuff is a summer crop.
Check in July, August, and early September.
You can also take dried marigold and make a tea out of them to spray on your plants to keep the bugs away. Planting them around your veggies also helps with bugs. It's the squirrells you have to fight where I live, I wouldn't care so much if they would eat the whole vegatable but they go around and take bites out of a bunch of veggies and leave the rest to rot. Yes, corn isn't worth eating if it hasn't been cooked on the cob. You can cut it off if you must after it's cooked. Real butter and salt and pepper. God I love corn. lol
I will surely try to save some for seed. Just thinking about it brightens my day. Every time I walk past the corn at the grocery I get mad. lol
My mouth is watering at the thought of fresh, home-grown corn off the cob! Your design is a real memory jogger for me, Janiece. My Dad was a very keen gardener and every year would grow a large patch of corn. What we didn't eat was let mature, then dried and stored as feed for our chooks (Aussie term for chickens). We just didn't know how lucky we were with the quality, flavour and nutritional value of our food before big business overturned the apple-cart and ethics of agriculture.
Thanks for stopping in Penny. Thanks to Andrea(edsel2084) My corn fast will be over by the end of summer. I'm going to grows a couple dozen stalks of heirloom corn. I've check the organic growers at our local farmers market and none of them touch corn. There is a new smaller market that opened last summer that I never got to but They may sell the heirloom corn there as their specialty is in providing the best nature has to offer in it's natural form. Monsanto will continue to poison food until it doesn't sell and they can't make a profit on it. I started fighting Monsanto over this in 1979 when they were lobbing to get pattents on their first mutations. Now they want to do the mutated Salmon when all of science says it will kill the life in any waterway it gets in. The rulers of this country will do anything for a buck.
I like your corn design and also feel sad that Monsanto has ruined such a staple food in our country. I still eat some corn from time to time but not without misgivings. We do get some sweet corn at the local farmer's market in the late summer. What is most insidious is the corn syrup in almost every processed food that exists. I enjoy your comments on your designs and the discussions that follow.
Would make a fun chef apron or isolated wall spot mural in a kitchen or restaurant.
But as far as not getting corn to eat any more--this is an easy to grow crop. You can put 16-30 stalks of heirloom corn in a patch of backyard and grow your own, free from any pesticides, agribusiness hybrids, or anything else your politics requires.
I can't guarantee the kernels will be as even as these in the picture, and I can guarantee you will get a little extra nutrients from bugs or worms, but unless you live on the 22nd floor of a 30 floor high rise, and have no yard at all, you really can grow your own corn.
Pick it first thing in the chill of the morning and eat it within that day and it will be the sweetest thing you ever tasted.
