PLACE: Back porch
SUBJECT: Dried ear of corn
Although I didn’t decorate with them them this fall, in the past I would place dried cornstalks on my front porch. In December, when we would take them down, I pulled the ears of corn off the stalks to feed them to the squirrels. Earlier this summer, while trying to organize the basement, I discovered a whole container of dried ears of corn that I had apparently forgotten about. We’ve been leaving them out in the backyard and our porch for the squirrels this fall. They are loving it ~ it’s like they have hit the corn jackpot…lucky squirrels.
