Corn harvesting

We went to Grandma and Grandpas to harvest some corn from their garden. The girls loved to help, they thought it was a corn carnival with all the different stations. Ben came up with a moto for us,... Pluck it, shuck it, blanch it, and tuck it. First you have to pluck the corn off the stalks, then shuck it off the cob, then boil it (blanch), and finally put it in freezer bags (tuck it). Afterwards we went down the lazy river, next to Yuba lake. I didn't get any photos but we had a grand time! Mom even fell in!

Here is a photo of the girls with Mom. They just happened to all be wearing red and white that morning.
