However, noodling nuns aren't the only volunteers this week! The gardening sisters have been picking their way through the field of sweet corn. A group of sisters gathered this afternoon to begin shucking and cleaning the corn for our first 'sweet' meal. The sounds of the sisters voices, laughter, and corn husks echoed out and around the work room. There is a joy in sharing some simple work together. Unfortunately, the yield of sweet corn has been small due to the drought in our area, and we aren't anticipating the chance to prepare and freeze our usual pounds for many meals throughout the winter.
