DD and I were calculating the economics of freezing
sweet corn as opposed to buying it from the store. first,
you know the producer and how the corn was raised.
That is a big plus. The farmer gives you a great deal-
just $3.00 for a dozen ears. 60 ears should yield 30 pints.
Well, our 60 ears yielded 19 quarts so each quart of
corn cost us about 78 cents, to counting the labor.
It was certainly worth our time to do it ourselves. Plus
we all had a taste and it is much sweeter than what
we buy frozen. We plans to freeze more as time permits.
I spent 75 minutes in the garden, picking tomatoes,
cucumbers and zucchini. The clouds were moving in
and blocking the sunset so it got dark sooner that I
had anticipated. But I finished what needed to be done
tonight and hopefully, we will get some rain shortly.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are SParked
and ready to go for the new week. HUGS!
