Path Break - Indian Corn By The Dozen

Though this blog is subtitled "A path to new roses.....", now and then I intend to take a side path.  This side path highlights the Indian Corn that I just picked today.  Husking each of the cobs was surprisingly enjoyable.  I have to admit that it was almost as much fun as viewing brand new rose seedlings for the very first time.  Much like waiting for each tiny rose bud to unfurl, opening each husk produced a feeling of anticipation.  Each multi-colored cob was unique, always different from all of the others.  This harvest time reminded me that cooler weather is just around the corner, and I am looking forward to it!

Now I you think that multi-colored sweet corn could find a market?? Please don't tell my wife that I'm thinking about it!
