Is it ready yet???? Corn!

I ate this corn cob a week ago and it was very yummy! But, I don't think it was quite ready to be picked because it was still small??
So I waited another week to pick theses guys! They were bigger and I peeled them back to poke a kernel with my nail, the liquid was milky:) I still wasn't sure so I peeled back further and I noticed that the kernels were starting to get smashed together to look more like rectangles. The top picture shows that the kernels are still pretty round.

So first check for brown tassels, then that it is of good size, then the finger nail test for milky liquid, and last for smashed, rectangle kennels:) Then taste test it:)

I am having this for dinner tomorrow! Yum, Yum!!!
