We took advantage of the warm, sunny weather this weekend and spent most of the day outside yesterday.
We continued putting away our fall harvest. P and I shelled sunflower seeds while B packed the carrots in sand and put them in the cellar. After that, we finished shucking this year's Indian Corn harvest. I always enjoy seeing the variety in color on the different ears of corn. Some have purple shucks and some have cream color. It is always a surprise to see what each ear looks like.
It was nice to finally be using the barn for farm and garden activities. We can now leave the corn in the barn and close the doors. It is much better to store it in the barn than have it spread all over the back porch where the chickens can get it as has happened in previous years.
We'll choose the best ears to save for planting next year.
We'll store some for grinding to make corn bread this year.
The remaining corn will be fed to the chickens.
Miss P made a corn husk doll with some of the corn husks.
