Corn on the cob has always been one of my favourite parts of any summertime meal. My dad always grew a few rows of corn in his garden, and as the summer went on the stalks grew taller and taller and I could not wait until it was time to pick a few ears. Alongside a [...]

We all heard the collective sigh of relief as the weather warmed up and the sun started melting the snow.  Here on the farm we've had small rivers flowing as the snow melted revealing grass, plowed fields and roadways.  This is a beautiful time of year as the ground is still solid enough to walk [...]
