Corn Huskers

Corn Huskers in training

August is prime time in Nebraska for sweet corn; local farmers sell it out of their pickup trucks along the highway outside of town.  A dozen fresh-picked ears cost $5.50, but they always throw a few extra ears in your bag.

These young lads from Iowa are getting their first experience at husking corn.  Looks like they’ve got a ways to go yet.

We’re not called Cornhuskers for nothin’.

Thought for the DaySex is good, but not as good as fresh sweet corn.
