Is corn ready?
I'm heading up north for the weekend and planning to stop for some roadside corn. However I saw on the news this morning that a lot of crops were way behind/not very good.
Am I setting myself up for disappointment? Any favourite places to stop along the 400 to Parry Sound?
They are definitely ready!
We had some fantastic corns this weekend in Brampton on our way to the African Safari.
Just had a few ears for dinner tonight. The farmer that deals with the area I'm in (Barrie/Oriilia/Muskoka) runs pretty much every stand you see on every street corner you pass...and every turn off on the highway from Barrie to Orillia.
Corn itself was sweet as anything, I ate my ears particularily fast, however there is one critique I had. the corn was sweet but the kernels were actually small. It felt like I was scraping the cob more than taking large kernels from it. i guess thats a mark of the bad season.
All in all, it was grand.
We had some excellent corn from a farmer's stand on Simcoe County Rd 6 and Tiny Township Concession 11 (near Balm Beach) about three weeks ago. Now looking forward to enjoying some again from the same place tonight.
