A few days ago, I was lucky enough to receive a bag of corn on the cob. A big bag. Five dozen cobs for free!
My main intention was to dry it on the cob for the hens and the rooster to have as a treat over the winter months. Typical Trail, he had to be a part of the husking process.
All the other dogs were content to lay on the couch or a dog bed and occasionally glance over to monitor the process. Not Trail, he has to be a part of everything.
I was tempted to give him a cob just to see what he would do with it but I knew that there would be four others wanting one too and that would make a big mess. Besides, I didn't want them eating the cob.
There are over three dozen cobs hanging upstairs in a spare room drying out for the hens. I've never done this before but so far it seems to be working well.
Not to worry, there were a few kernels that made into the food dishes that night. There are also a couple of bags of kernels in the freezer too.
Later, there were carrots...
