The boys were excited to finally harvest the corn we've been growing all summer. We might get two more harvests this size. The red corn was a little starchy and lost its color when boiled; it will probably need to be grilled next time. The yellow and white corn was super sweet.
These pictures were taken today at a little canal downtown. There is a company that rents canoes and kayaks by the hour. We had about 10,000 things on the to-do list, but I'm glad we left some off in order to do this instead. The only bummer is that we didn't have time to rent a paddleboard. I told Plantboy that he owes me a date. The kayak folks will be there three more weeks; and next spring they'll be back too if we don't make it again in 2013. We paddled down by Autzen Stadium. I love our town any time of year, but there it something very exciting around here about the fall. Go Ducks!
