Popping corn after a short vacation

We took off a few days the end of last week to go to Pawleys Island, S.C. The weather and water were great!

I then took three days off work to goof around on the farm and finished harvesting the popcorn.

We bought a corn sheller to make it easier to get the kernels of corn off the cob, and it works great.

Levi offered to shell the corn for a fee. I asked him when he was going to start paying me for the chicken feed going to his hens. That ended that conversation.

Jenifer popped up a few batches and figured out that 1/4 cup will make 6 to 7 cups of popcorn. Enough for 4-5 people. A cup and a half will make 40-plus cups of popcorn.

Anytime between now and Thanksgiving is the time to plant garlic for harvest next June.
