More from the garden (or Beatrix shucks corn and it’s funny)

The corn isn’t really supposed to be picked for another couple of weeks.Β  I am afraid they will have already eaten it all by then!

    Oh Bea!!

  2. She is a joy to watch through your photos πŸ™‚ how can you not smile and laugh her around??

  3. Adorable!

  4. ADORABLE! Beatrix should be the lead character in a children’s book series! She is so much fun! πŸ™‚

  5. Absolutely beautiful!

  6. Wow. Bea might need to be in a shucking zone when she does this.
    It looked like Silas might get an elbow (or cob) at any second.

  7. Sweet! Beatrix reminds my of Disneys witch Mim πŸ˜‰
    Love, Maren

  8. hee hee!

  9. Haha!! Beatrix reminds me so much of my Lyddie – SO expressive all the time! We are still waiting on our corn to get a little bigger but get fresh ripe corn at the nearby produce stand and boil it for just a TINY bit in boiling water most of the time, but I could eat it raw too! YUM!

  10. Thanks for this…my 5 year old is laughing uncontrollably. She loves looking at your blog everyday to see what the girls are doing. She talks about them like she knows them, it’s really cute!

  11. you are right she is so funny

  12. Haha she is too funny! I have to agree with Beatrix-shucking corn is pretty funny. WAY more fun than pea shucking!

    Another few weeks?! Your garden is going to be empty by then!! πŸ™‚

    Silas’ face is just so precious!!

  13. Oh these are great. I especially love that Silas is so constant in each one while Beatrix is really animated!

  14. This is precious. My 2 year old LOVES any kind of corn. It is her absolute favorite food. I loved watching kids eat corn on the cob. Thanks for this funny moment!

  15. Hah! So funny! That’s a mighty big job for a little girl but she put her all into it, didn’t she? Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

  16. so funny!
    I have a series of photos of my (now almost 11 year old) at 18 months eating her first chocolate chip cookie. it is still a favorite to look through….. all those faces! so much fun.
    happy weekending to you~~

  17. My how they are growing! I have a recipe for fresh corn salad and its so yummy. I had no idea you could eat it raw before this summer! I guess you are never too old to learn something new. Have a beautiful weekend.

  18. Hilarious!
    Everyone needs a Beatrix πŸ™‚
    Thank you, friend…

  19. i’ve never eaten corn raw, but your kids sure seem to love it!

I love to hear from you!
