Corn picking

In the midst of all that is going on prepare for the trip to Bloemfontein, K and I spent a little time in the garden today.
For a while, I have thought the corn should be picked, and I didn't want to leave it too much longer. I have been checking it regularly but been uncertain as to the right time to pick....... it is the first time we have grown corn.
What a sweet surprise to see the big juicy kernels. The children had great fun opening them up. It looks as if they were not fully fertilised as the tops were not developed. Maybe we picked them too soon? Anyhow, tonight it was chili con carne with home grown corn for dinner...what a treat!
