Picking Corn

This happened sometime in November, but anyway… We had a little corn picking party here. Instead of picking it all with the combine, we left six rows for 200 feet or so and had a neighbor come over and demonstrate how it used to be done. They used a “hook” to help get the husk off and then the ear was tossed into the wagon. Apparently, a fast picker could have one ear hitting the wagon, one in the air, and one in hand. We weren’t quite that fast.
