honeybees as well as a bunch of
blue orchard mason bees that were around. It turns out that the starlings were really working the
corn too. This weekend, we had to harvest a bunch of the corn before the birds did. We ate some for supper this weekend and Emily
froze most of it still on the cob. She blanched the ears for 6 minutes then let them cool. Once cool and dry, she then wrapped them in cling-wrap and put the ears in freezer bags. We probably harvested half of the corn so we’ll see what the birds left us later in the week!
