Fresh From The Farm

I didn’t order corn in a blanket!

One side of the walking trail near my house that I frequently use is bordered by a farmer’s field…. which is kind of an odd thing to find in the middle of suburbia, but I guess it slipped through the cracks as my hometown expanded out that way over the last fifty years.  Despite being detached from its farm, the land is used to grow crops, with corn being planted on it many years.  This year’s corn was harvested a couple months ago, but the combine never gets all 0f it… and as I was out walking Wednesday, I noticed one pretty full cob still wrapped in its husk on a felled stalk that was missed.  Naturally, I brought it home for my squirrels.

What would they think about getting a treat straight from the field rather than a store-bought bag?

Hmmmmm…… smells like Monsanto!

Well, I’m starving! May as well grab a bite…

Munch! Munch! Munch!

Hey….. not bad!

I think I’ll just have me some more!

Only the very best homegrown produce will do for my Saturday Squirrels!

My compliments to the farmer!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    What a treat for the squirrels! We glean farmer’s fields around here for potatoes, sweet potatoes, and corn, which we give to local shelters and soup kitchens.

    Awwwwwwwwww. What a precious little guy.

  5. I suspect squirrels (being the non-discriminatory critters they are) would welcome just about anything edible this time of year.

  6. Oh how cool to give them some FRESH stuff. Too bad you couldn’t swipe – uh – I mean HARVEST a few more cobs.

    • I’ll have to pay more attention next harvest (only it probably won’t be corn next year). The only reason I noticed this time was some critters had dragged some of the empty cobs up onto the trail. A lot of the outer stalks get picked through even before harvest by all of the nearby critters…

    Aw, straight from field to squirrel. I hope he saved some for his mates.

    What a great idea–I’ll have to do that for our little fellows although they’re looking pretty healthy right now–I have one that I’ve nicknamed Chunky Monkey because he’s so round!

    Save some for the birds.
