aw shucks, new party, fall garden pests

my rainwater brothers wife who has her own wife hoa
sent us this video
its how to get that shuck off the corn when you cook it
without leaving any of those stringy things on the corn
never ever have i been able to shuck an ear of corn and
get all of them off

this guy swears by his method
i plan to try it this evening with three ears of corn

try it out

shucks what have you got to lose anyway

because the two parties in congress seem to be ineffective
there is a new party forming
think ill mark that one on the ballot

0      republican
0      democrat
X      ticked off

if you have a fall garden there are two pests they may attack
or is attacking your garden now

they eat little round holes in your stuff
ooooooo  this size or 00000000 this size

the trick is to find them and squish them or
to sprinkle bt bacillus thuringiensis on the plants
these natural bacteria will kill the caterpillars

simply spray the leaves on these plants and they will wash off
some gardeners recommend to spray the plants twice a week
with the water spray

you can also spray them with liquid seaweed
i use a liquid seaweed/orange oil spray if the sprays of water
arent enough

enjoy the corn

  1. You've got my attention on the corn, gotta try it. Have a great day.

  2. As a Cornhusker, I was glued to the video. I learned something new, especially the "mighty fine" Ove Gloves.

  3. To TOGD-
    Cool corn trick, but then you lose the handle!

    To Transplanted Cornhusker:
    Aren't you a pro at husking corn, just because it's in your genes?

    Ove Gloves ARE awesome! I need to get me some!

    Wishing that there was still fresh corn to husk in my neck of the woods of Chicago!
