Answer

Freezing Corn on the Cob

Question

I have purchased several ears of corn and want to freeze them. I saw you on the Weather Channel and you said how to freeze them in the husks but I cannot remember how. Please help. I don't want to loose all this beautiful corn.

Answer

One of my favorite summer vegetables is sweet corn. I just love it and I always I have plenty on hand to get me through winter. To freeze sweet corn simply leave the husks on and cut an inch or so off the tip of the ear then slide the corn into plastic bags to store in the freezer. Leaving the husks intact will protect the kernels from freezer burn. When you are ready to prepare the corn, boil the water before removing the cob from the freezer. With the water boiling, remove the corn, shuck the husks and immediately place it in the water. You want the corn to be frozen when you add it to the boiling water. When the corn is done dunk it in cool water to stop the cooking. Corn will keep in the freezer for about 3 months.

I want to raise chickens and ducks but I don\'t have a coop. I live on 40 acre farm in ND. I am deciding between 6+ breeds of ducks and chickens but cant decide they\'re all pretty good egg layers and docile. I want pure breeds and have to have to have them all. What should I do? Where should I order them? Please help.

Just another thought... the VC and the BK in my previous post are also nearly identical.

Targeting Just the Weed

If you want to use the synthetic weed killer close to good plants, try making a bottomless box out of an old cardboard one. Mark the outside of the box as such before you start spraying. Then place the box over the offending plant and spray... just it. Trick is to match the size of the box to the size of the weed you want to kill. But boxes are easy to come by, so you can make more than one. Had to do this to target some Bush Killer that came too close in my yard, and it did protect. Getting rid of the BK, however... well... :(

I love this piece of music! It is so calming and just right for all those who love gardens. It actually describes my 94 year old mom who still likes to get out and work around in her garden! Thank you for giving us this lovely piece (peace) of music on each show.
