When I was a child I had an Uncle Carmen who owned a large cornfield across his home. I can remember visiting my cousin and aunt and uncle during picking time and running free through acres of cornfields. We would stop occasionally, grab a corn, peel off the husks, and eat it raw. It was so sweet it tasted like it had been sugared. It is one of my fondest memories of my childhood. Oh to be able to run through a cornfield and feel that freedom I felt when I was a child.

How sad is it that so many children miss that type of experience?

We used to do that too. Sometimes I would get lost in those cornfields and yell for my brother to come and get me out of there! Thanks for sparking that memory!

Mmmmm. GOod sweet corn is so delicious. Most of what we get here is stuff they usually give the animals. It's rather starchy and not that sweet.

There's nothing like sweet corn fresh from the stalk.

@HazySue .....That's for sure. When I was little I liked to play with the silk. It was so soft.

That's a lovely memory - I have a similar one, but the field contained wheat.

sweet childhood memories. I find the older I get the more I remember the good times and push away the bad ones.

It sounds idyllic to be able to run free through a corn field.

it was a lot of fun. As a kid we found fun in so many things that kids don't experience today.

What a treasured memory. I grew up in Philadelphia so no corn field near us. But now that I live in North Carolina, we have grown our own corn. Never ran through it though, only a couple 5 foot long rows for us. But I have tasted it fresh and you're so right, so tender and sweet. Have a blessed day

@Dena91 it's great that you have your corn rows now and can try out the corn when it is fresh picked off the stalks. You have a wonderful day yourself.

@hatley what nice memories of childhood you have. I seem to look back more often pulling out some of my memories to enjoy as I get older.
