An ongoing journal of building an "off-the-grid" solar homestead, life, boring tedious stuff, knee-jerk eco-socialist opinion, work (as little as possible) and family---from the edge of the wilderness (where the Sierra meets the Cascades).

Yipi-Ai-Oh Mini Tiny Corn Cobs...
I promised, when I started this blog, that I would show everything, warts and all. Our failures and mistakes. This has got to be one of our more embarrassing moments. The corn harvest!
Two foot tall stalks.
Joni approaches the corn cautiously.
Yes, there are ears in there...
Kylie harvests an ear...
Yes, we shall have some of the corn for dinner tonight. The rest Joni plans to make into some creamed corn. We are on a mission to prove eco-poet Gary Snyder wrong...but not this year.
Tomorrow we shall start some real work on the house.
