This week we finished harvesting our Indian corn. After collecting and shucking comes the sorting.
The smallest ears are fed to the chickens. We save the largest and best looking (making sure that we save some of each color) for seed.
I pulled about twenty that I will use in my K-2 art class. I'll have the kids do a macro drawing of the corn with oil pastels.
P has filled a basket with ears that are pink. She plans to plant the pink kernels next year to see if she gets all pink corn.
We'll make corn meal from some of the corn for our Little Red Hen Bread, a family favorite.
What's been keeping you busy?
