We've been canning and freezing as the surplus is coming in. Shorty and Toby have been helping.
Its corn this week. Toby (below) is like a vulture when we are preparing food. He lies in wait, and snatches any fallen portions very quickly. Shorty (above) is a little more polite, she waits to be handed her portion.
Toby retrieved a fallen corn cob quicker than we could pick it up.
There was no getting it from him easily.... but he did allow a picture or two.
"....even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from the masters table."
We are drying the corn from our own garden, and are freezing corn from our neighbor's garden.
I got this wonderful corn cutter from Target.
I put up the first batch a couple of weeks ago, and Luke put up the second batch today.
Russ, Eddie and Luke helped our neighbor harvest his corn, and we were rewarded with the surplus.
20 Quarts all together.
