Been in the corn all day and ended up with 64 pints in the freezer. That Incredible corn melts in your mouth as it taste like it already has butter on it straight out of the garden boiled.

Seriously debating on putting about 10 pigs on my garden spot for a year let them eat up all the roots so I wouldn't have to deal with the end of the year jungle.

I am a member of the “Illinois morels, mushrooms, points, sheds and more “ Facebook group. People eat the heck out of the sweet corn that has the big moldy looking growth thing. They are thrilled when it happens and brag. People are jealous of them. I don’t know how they prepare it for eating. I put the commas where they are in the title if you want to look it up. I know that stuff will get slimy.
We eat morels, but I see people on there with crazy looking stuff that is edible. Everything I post someone says don’t eat, make you sick.

I ran hogs in my garden years ago for the winter...I had the very best garden the next year and the cantaloupes were unbelievable....and it was easy to till if a little uneven because they had turned so much over....and under.....

First home raised cantaloupe. There is a bunch of them in the garden all coming ripe. I think we have had fresh corn on the cob out of the garden every day for the last week. Started giving some corn away. We have watermelon too. Jumped the gun on the first on of those. The chickens ended up getting it. I have never been successful raising either watermelon or cantaloupe. I guess this is the good side of all those 100 degree days we have had.

Over on the coast I had a bull pen that I had to clean in front of the feeder by hand once a week. A light load dumped into the loader bucket. Spread that on the garden (more like dump). Early March I would get a couple half grown pigs and put them in the garden until early May when they would get butchers. They did a wonderful job of spreading and tilling in that manure. Grew great gardens.
