We had the first sweet corn of the season! I've bought sweet corn at the store recently but I'm sure that was from Florida or another far away state. Tonight we saw a truck parked out by Walmart selling sweet corn and I just had to buy some local corn! Which means I spent $4 more on groceries but am still under budget for the week. The man warned us that the corn was real tiny and a bit buggy (with the wet weather we have been having lately I think one would be hard pressed to find corn that wasn't a bit buggy) but that it was good. He was right...we ate all 16 ears of corn for supper! I'd be scared to see how much a bigger family would be able to go though!
On a side note, we got our first cucumber from the garden today and the kids scarfed it down in seconds. Joe also tore the half ripe cherry tomatoes from the vine and popped those into his mouth. I thought for sure he would spit the first one out but that boy loves tomatoes so much that he even enjoys the half ripe ones! I can't wait until we are getting more from the garden and I'm anxiously awaiting my first bite of a garden fresh cucumber still warm from the sun!
