CORN DAYS ARE HERE! Enjoy a free dozen ears of Harward Farms sweet corn with $10 purchase!
If you took a stroll through your garden right now, what would you find? Late summer blooms? Bees, butterflies, hummingbirds? Colorful veggies among over zealous vines? Weeds? My little garden patch is small, nothing like the prolific garden plot my grandfather rightfully took pride in but I'm enjoying all of the above! I currently have cabbage, eggplant, cucumbers, enough summer squash and zucchini to feed a small village and my favorite heirloom tomatoes. Yesterday wasn't spent in my garden however, it was spent in my sewing room busily preparing for the Christmas Figs BOM (It's going to be fabulous, by-the-way!) My husband, knowing I was happily lost in sewingland (and in a time crunch) made the most wonderful dinner for our family. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I have the best husband. On the menu: smoked sirloin, wild rice and his own beautiful mix of roasted veggies straight out of the garden. Oh. My. Gosh. Mouthwatering garden goodness! The only thing that would have made the meal more complete would have been an ear of fresh sweet corn. Alas, unlike my grandfather, it is the one veggie I can't seem to grow. So, like many of you locals, I'm looking forward to tomorrow when we celebrate CORN DAYS here at the shop. Saturday, August 18th, we'll give you a coupon for aFREE dozen ears of Harward Farms Sweet Corn with your purchase of $10 or more in merchandise here at the Corn Wagon Quilt Co.! Do you think if I brought home a dozen and hid myself in my sewing room, my handsome husband would make another winning summer dinner? I'll keep you posted. CORN DAYS coupon redeemable only at the Harward Farms produce stand across the street from our shop near the corner of 400 S 400 E during business hours 08/18/18.
