Kernels and the chicken!

We've had some very hot days lately. Between the heat and our heifer, the corn crop is looking rather sad. 

Last night we decided to harvest a few cobs, before the cow did!  As good as our corn cobs looked, Erin and Vaughan weren't keen on the cooked product, so only nibbled at theirs.

Quite possibly the cobs would have benefited from extra growing time but we had a lot of fun admiring our first harvest, regardless of taste.  The chookies received the leftovers this morning.  Erin reported the girls were initially a bit bemused by all the yellow kernels.  Usually the cobs they receive are pretty much empty!
