We are drying popcorn.Lots and lots of popcorn.
Troy tells me there are about 50 cobs around the stove right now.
There are about 100 more in the shop that he was shucking last night.
He figures this is about half of what grew.
That's a lot of popcorn.
The difference from last year is that the cobs did not dry on the stalk. The weather's been so wet that Troy finally gave up on them drying outside and picked what he could. While he was shucking them, there was water pouring out from the skins.
Hence the cobs drying by the woodstove.
