Sweet Corn - A Memory Prompt

What are the first five "sweet corn" thoughts that come to your mind?

My List:

1. Weed and Water Duties - During the summer, between my 4th and 5th grade years, my father planted a field of corn. My brother and sister and I had to go out in the field and hoe the weeds and water the corn all summer. (This was a new experience for three kids who had previously lived in the city. We didn't like it.)

2. Sweet Corn? - When our corn was grown my Dad put a sign up at the end of our driveway to let people know the corn was for sale. One day, when my parents weren't home, a man came to buy some corn. I did my best to help him, but, he asked me a question - "Is it sweet corn?" I think I told him "no" because it wasn't sweet to me. (I had no idea that there was different corn - sweet corn (sold for people) and field corn (grown for animal feed.)

3. Children of the Corn - When I was a kid I loved to watch scary movies. The movie "Children of the Corn" cured me of any desire to watch another scary movie.

4. Corn Field Maze - A few years ago Kevin and I took our children on a field trip to a dairy. They had a maze cut out of the corn field; so, we walked through the maze.

5. Corn Husks - I love that the grocery stores put big boxes next to the corn so we can shuck the corn before we buy it. (Less mess to bring home!)
