    Default only in season

    among other things, planted some sweet corn today.

    went to the grocers for momma's din din, what should i find but a bunk of pretty good looking california sweet corn.

    could i wait 85 days for my corn to ripen, or did i buy a couple ears to go with the ny steak?

    p.s., this is not ny either.

    I saw some corn ears at the food store this weekend, but I wouldn't buy them. They looked dehydrated. The leaves were dry and wrinkled. I didn't even look at the kernels. It did spark an interest in getting some corn when some good stuff becomes available.

    Corn is not edible in May.
