*fall harvest at Erilyn

Henry went inside and got the sickle that we purchased at an antique shop a long time ago. We were simply breaking the ears off our our corn stalks. Well, we are never SIMPLY doing anything around here. The sickle made the job so much more enjoyable.
We did not get corn planted in the spring, but decided to give late fall sweet corn a try.  We did pretty good. A lot of the cobs were still immature, but not a waste at all. 

It wasn't a waste because both the goats and the chickens were grateful! 

Today when we came in from the garden we brought 4 large broccoli heads, tons of late sweet corn, more banana and hot peppers than I know what to do with as well as a basket of winter squash. 

Tonight for dinner we enjoyed some creamed corn straight from the garden.  My mother makes some of T. H. E. best  creamed corn you will ever eat - this came no where near as good as hers, but it was still good.  We will be able to have several meals from the corn crop from this fall.   I finally got all of those onions planted as well.

If you remember earlier this week I was sharing with you about a quilt that I have been working on.   I had hoped to get the top completed by Wednesday, but is still sitting where I left it.  I have had some migraine headaches lately which pretty much put me in a state of doing nothing but resting in a quite, cool dark room.    I am feeling much better now and I will be sewing this weekend!


  1. What a great looking crop!

    I'm glad you're feeling better; hope your migraines stay away.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Looks like your garden did pretty well. That corn looks amazing!
    I'll be interested in seeing some pictures of that quilt. I have always wanted to make one.


I enjoy your comments. Thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts!
