“I have no hostility to nature, but a child’s love to it. I expand and live in the warm day like corn and melons.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Summers’ heat lingers on, burning brightly and igniting the flesh of plump tomatoes, infusing hot peppers with incendiary warmth and prodding the corn crop to further glory. Local Connecticut grown corn is considered by many to be the king of summer crops! Succulent and sweet, fresh summer corn is truly a highlight of August and September.
