Our Sweet Corn will soon be appearing in your baskets! Enjoy!! Weather permitting, it could last well through September and the sweetest varieties mature later in the season. And it is Canadian Organic unlike the chemical-laden sweet corn which plagues roadside stands and markets these days! Yikes – unless it is certified organic, it is literally full of chemicals from seed to harvest!
Our sweet corn is very expensive to grow, but we should have large quantities in the weeks to come!! And it will soon be available as an Add-On as well.
The down-side of certified organic corn, is that sometimes little critters (they have loved the hot, dry conditions this summer) can find their way into a cob. If this happens, just cut out the small portion which the critter has invaded and use the rest. This is just a fact of life in growing corn which has not been soaked in chemical pesticides. We often think that if consumers truly realized the huge amount of chemicals used in conventional corn production – even LOCAL conventional sweet corn – that they would never serve it to their children!
