I have been waiting all Spring for this time of year, harvesting my peaches and cream sweet corn. Overall I am a little disappointed in this first batch. A combination of insufficient rain, with planting it too close, and letting the weeds get out of hand has really hurt my yields. There are plenty of ears, but they are smaller in size. A good sized ear is about 7 to 8 inches and I have some of those, but I have a lot of ears that are in the 4 to 5 inch range. I harvested 30 during the week and will harvest the remaining next week.
I also harvested more yellow squash this week and I am freezing it for use throughout the year. We are still in desperate need of rain and I pray that we get some in the next week. God is good, I am blessed.
These are the best of the batch, 7 to 8 inch ears here.

Here are the rest of the ears, decent but small.
