I've been vegetable gardening for over thirty years and have just this year branched out into a larger scale of corn planting with the incentive of corn blanch/freezing.
All I wanted was a possibly better tool to extract the kernels via input from the Tomatoville forum-your post failed in that respect.
I have recently purchased a Kuhn Rikon Corn Zipper thanks to several here that made the positive recommendations.
Guess I'm now up to eight posts.
no problem. thanks Worth and Imp. love you both!

Please stick to my subject or start your own thread. Jeeze...

People were just being friendly and helpful, so if that offends you - you know where the proverbial door is...

One last word of farewell, Dear Master and Mistress.

Whenever you visit my grave,

say to yourselves with regret

but also with happiness in your hearts

at the remembrance of my long happy life with you:

"Here lies one who loved us and whom we loved."

No matter how deep my sleep I shall hear you,

and not all the power of death

can keep my spirit

from wagging a grateful tail.

As for the drill attachment to spin the corn I wonder how easy it would be to auger that thing right into your hand.

But of course I live in Texas and the dam things are huge.

Just received a "Corn Zipper" in the mail. Later this week is the scheduled harvest-we had a sneak preview for lunch today-four sweet ears.
