    Well now that it is finally SWEET CORN season...I'm pretty muchly working every other day during the week. My buddy put out 8 acres of sweet corn this year and hires me to help pick. Me and him pick around 190 dozen at a time. Which weighs around 1500lbs. We fill up to of those BIG watermelon crates/boxes and haul it off to the local Wegmans grocery. It's really funny when we pull into to the unloading lane infront of the store because lots of people come up to ask if they can buy the corn...Nope but you can go inside and get it lol. The store goes through both of those watermelon crates and more in 2-3 days.
    That is A TON of corn...literally lol.
    Well it's off to work for me!

    SamG, I would SO much rather be picking corn with you than sitting in my windowless office! Hope your day is fun!
