This was Monday’s view from my office window. We’re putting in some new paving for parking. Strawberries just beyond the corral full of flowers on the far side of the equipment. Rhubarb to the immediate left of the berries. Lettuces, carrots, beets, snap peas, snow peas and radishes to the upper right of the berries. Beyond them is a long, narrow patch of corn which has just come in. Very sweet. Unless you’re a fan of starch, you need to eat corn as closely as possible to the time of harvest. The sugars inside of corn start converting into starch as soon as the ear is picked. Starch is a sugar too, of course, but it makes the ear taste different. Best scenario? Grow your own.
