No Corn for Me

With the floods this year, corn is nearing $8 a bushel. That's quite a lot for roughage. I shan't be eating any this year.

What is booming, thanks to the floods, are the mosquitoes. In Iowa, there are 7 times more mosquitoes this year than last year.

Know what this means?

I ain't going home.

Shovel, swat and swim. This is not a good year for my little home state.

i think that corn is for cornflakes and animal food. local sweetcorn should still be affordable. i hope! nothing beats corn on the cob and the first real BLT, with Nueske bacon from MI. auntie em
