Sitting on the verandah – with coffee in the morning – shucking the speckled corn so it can dry just a little further before we grind it into flour. This is one of the Indian corns an old heirloom corn, so I will be saving plenty of seeds too. It grew deep in my vegetable garden far from the maize that fills the fields.
Once dried and ground I will make it into tortillas and bread.
One hundred more bales of hay in the barn.
The New Zealanders are having a wonderful time.
