The tops are pollenating and the silk is growing long...the cobs will start to become very fat and the silk will become brown .. boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes .then butter up a slice of bread and roll your cob in the thick butter...add a little salt or pepper to taste and you will have a wonderful treat!! We used to throw harvest parties that we called "Corn Roasts" even though the corn was boiled! great excuse to have a huge bonfire and cook outdoors...

Many thanks, Lori, will try this out. Hope we get the weather to do it al fresco!
