Sweet Corn Is In! Here Are the Ears I Swear By. How About You?
All of July’s hot days and August’s incessant rain, not to mention the hours and hours of loving toil with the soil by local farmers—these are the ingredients of the harvest bounty we’re seeing now.
We’re entering the sweet spot of the growing season. The sweet corn spot, that is. And if you’re me (which you may be), nothing punctuates summer’s denouement quite like the arrival of beautiful, locally grown ears of corn—and the makeshift corn stands that pop up on road shoulders and pull-offs throughout the valley.
I know you have your go-to sweet corn stand. So tell us where they are, and what farm the corn is from!
I’ll take all your favorites and crank out a Best-Of post later this week. Comment below...before the corn’s all plucked, shucked, and gone.
Meantime, I’m loading up on MacLennan Farm’s sweet ears, right there on Route 5 north of Windsor, in front of the ramshackle old barn. A white van, a pop-up tent, and gold inside.
