The skies were gray but the smiles were sunny and we had a terrific harvest from the third succession. Big thanks to the Calixto, de la Rosa, Jarquin, Martinez and Ramirez families who filled the back of the pickup then enjoyed a cookout and campfire. It was a great last-day-before-school for the students and the corn was delivered once again to the Pillsbury United Communities food bank in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis. Thank you, everyone, it was a joy to have you at our farm!

Extra bonus! Monday was also a terrific day for huitlacoche (aka corn smut!) – this is only part of the haul!
