Isn’t this the most beautiful corn you have ever seen? I mean, I’ve seen some beautiful corn before, but the cob in the foreground appears to have been encrusted with precious gems.
Shane, a farmer at my local weekly farmers’ market brought these cobs with him last Thursday for show. He didn’t know the variety names since one of his neighbours grew it. We all stood around oohing and awing and snapping pictures like we had never seen anything like it in our lives.
Because we hadn’t!
As one onlooker remarked, “How does nature make colours like that?”
Happy Thanksgiving Weekend Canada! Or as I am now calling it, Great Excuse to Stuff Your Face Weekend.
And if you happen to know the variety name, inquiring minds would love to know!
