Another test on Monday morning

Beautiful day here – it’s sweet corn season! I’ve never tasted anything like it – I believe it’s the sweetest corn Rick has ever grown. It’s called Bodacious and I wish I could invite you all for supper!

OMG! I think the picture loaded! Did it?

    Yay! That corn looks awesome! We haven’t had any yet this year… eating our green beans and cukes. Tomatoes soon. But I love corn. Would love to come for supper! You are the best for persevering Mary, we all appreciate the work you’ve done. Clicking away here in Topsfield! Jan in MA

      Janice H – my luck was short lived – the next photo wouldn’t load! Ugh!

  2. Marsha from Kansas

    Yes! The picture was sideways in the email and right side up on the blog. That sweet corn does look delicious!! Five ads but no X to close.

  3. Linda in Tennessee

    Yay! Glad to see the corn!
    Only plus to all your problems and tests is I had lots of ads to click!!

    The picture came through!!! Corn looks great, didn’t you post a great freezer recipe for corn some years back?

    I recall it had cream and butter in it and it froze beautifully. Any chance you could repost that recipe?

    Marsha from Kansas (I’ve never met anyone from Kansas!) it was like that on my computer but I hit the refresh button and the X’s appeared! Jan from MA

    As soon as I posted the comment, seven ads appeared with the X so I could close them. Guess I need to comment each time??!?

    I was able to see the picture of the corn in the email notice but when I clicked on the blog to read the comments, the picture didn’t download. Your getting closer though!

    My mouth watered just seeing Rick’s corn.
    So good to close 3 ads, too.
    Thanks for not giving up on posting pictures to us, Mary.

    Yes. And Bodacious corn is the best. We have grown it here in southeast Iowa too. Sorry to read that the next picture didn’t post.

  10. Jane Dumler

    Got the delicious corn and also the railroad picture. You are wonderfully patient getting this fixed.

  11. Sue in Oregon

    Horray!! It loaded. Good for you, Mary and good for everyone. Yes, I love Bodacious corn. It is so-o-o sweet.

    I received a picture. It was such a wet spring here in Indiana that gardens and sweet corn planted along with field corn got planted so late I don’t know when we will have local corn.

    Maybe I didn’t wait long enough, but the picture of the sweet corn came on when I clicked on comments. You didn’t put any butter on the corn??? Looks good.
    Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is officially open. There has been a bit a rain here so it has been rather quiet for now. That will change as soon as it clears up. They will all have lots of fun enjoying all the companionship and our wonderful scenery and weather.

    Yeah!!!!! Corn is gorgeous and it’s good to see your perseverance has paid off. Have a great day, Mary.🌞

    Great looking corn! Sure hope your troubles are over with your site. Computers are great..except when they aren’t. Will be looking forward to your daily happenings once again!

  16. Vickie Lemonds

    I feel a road trip coming on! Maybe we’ll actually get to meet Mary and Hazel! How grand would that be? I can’t even imagine!

  17. Caryn Goulden

    Yes! The corn picture came through. Thank you for persevering despite all the aggravation. Love your blog!

  18. Diane Bauer

    YEAH!!!!!!!!!! The picture came through perfectly and I had 8 ads to close on this one! I’m gonna hold my breath and hope this means good things!!

    The sweet corn looks delicious! I didn’t get any when I was back in MN. Like the beef, sweet corn is not as good as in the Midwest. Enjoy!

    Picture of corn reminds me of the time we were at camp when it was corn time. Everyone ate dinner at your house of corn and huge chunks of butter. It was so good fresh from garden. Maybe Mary Baker’s house.
    I only saw 1 ad.

  20. Nikki M in Tx

    Yes..Corn! Could the problem be with devise loading pictures from? Phone? Just another thought!

  21. Delores

    When the pic of corn began to load, the spiritual, “Mary, Mary, don’t you weep, don’t you moan”, NO MORE, thought came. Hoping this is the end of all of your frustration with the blog. Thanks again for pursuing and including us in your wonderful life. For sure will have to make a trip to the Farm Store for some fresh corn.

  22. Jane

    Good to see a picture from you. I know how hard you are trying to get us pictures. Thank you for all your posts.

  23. Martha Engstler

    You won’t have time to read all the wonderful comments, we are all happy for you and us.

    Progress and sweet corn variety I hadn’t heard about! How did you do with the weather? We got about a five minute warning before the winds hit….lots of lightning which our grand puppy doesn’t like but as long as I sat on the floor with her, she was fine. At home, her family has been to the basement four times, with water, bike helmets, blankets and phones, so who can blame her for being scared. I will send you a picture if I can figure out how to do it.

  25. Cathy Platzer

    I remember our garden lunches when we were there for camp. I’m so glad you are back up and praying no more clutches. I missed your posts, even though I don’t always respond I love your pictures and memories.
    And yes, I’d like to know why Reed didn’t go to State, his work is amazing.

    Mary, the photoes and corn looks yummy. This is for Rick: how did you get the curves. I like to eat my corn very methodically…three rows at a time in long straight lines. I think I would mess up with the curves. And, yes, I know it the tastes the same! 🤣
