More Smut

smutbowlCorn smut that is. Eddie brought us two dozen infected ears Saturday but they were past prime, and the tumors had begun to release their teliospores. As a result, I got only small tumors and a total of 10 ounces. That’s what is in the bowl. He invited me to come out the next day, which I did, and we walked one field. We picked 8 ears, but they were all great. The tumors had not separated the shucks, but the ears were swollen at the top. As a result, I got 1 lb 11 oz from just the 8 ears. Tomorrow is Wednesday and smutbrainI’m going back for another look see. Daniel says we need 3-4 pounds for the mushroom pop-up dinner Rebecca is planning for October. Right now we have a little over 2 lbs. I used some to make quesadilla for Ellen and I. Pretty good.

 

 

Lobster083016The monster patch finally came through with a batch of lobsters. Two different spots in the patch fruited and I got 6 pounds. Going out tomorrow again and see what 2 days does.

  1. Lobsters may look a little rough in the woods but boy do they cook up good in the pan. Delicious treat after a long work day.

  2. Yum! Thank you for replying about the dried ramps. I call it magic powder! Do you still have some at the Market Square farmers market? I need more.
    Cheers!
