SWEET CORN —-Wednesday, July 19, 2017

(ALL PHOTOS ARE FROM LAST YEAR–BUT THEY REPRESENT JUST WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE THIS YEAR!)

Our neighbors have started harvesting the sweet corn!  Mountain Fresh is grown close to us on our side of California Mesa.

Olathe Sweet Sweet Corn is grown on the other side of California Mesa in the Olathe area.

Either way…our area’s delicious sweet corn is heading to a Kroger/Wal-Mart/or Safeway near you, even as I write!

And NO  neither one of these sweet corns (nor any sweet corn) is genetically modified!

They are hybrids!  Glyphosate will kill the sweet corn plants.

Hope you enjoy some and when you do…know the ears were harvested some place here on a farm in western Colorado!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda

  1. Yum! Now it’s officially summer ~ The best sweet corn is the sweet corn from the Delta/Olathe area! Everyone waits for it! Thanks for sharing the news, Linda! (really the best of the best is that row or two that Terry grows) 😀

  2. i love corn on the cob. but it has to be fresh from the farmer’s market for me. It’s an earlier harvest in your neck of the woods than it is here in Oregon. When we traveled, it was great fun to buy local corn from farm stands in different states.

  3. D > Here in the UK it’s known as maize. It’s grown a lot, but is more typically used in animal feeds or biofuels: the climate being cooler and less sunny than in Colorado, the cobs don’t grow as large, or as sweet. So the Green Giant sweet corn we buy in cans could well come from near you!

    • They could, but we don’t have a canning factory here. Most of the canned corn comes out of the interior of the USA or California. The corn we grow, on our farm, is animal feed or used for cereals. Ours goes to Foster Farms.
