Here at Lattin Farms everything is winding down for the holidays. The wind is cold, clouds are rolling in, there is talk of snow this weekend. So our ground is at rest at the moment. But it is a good time to clean up around the buildings, hoop houses and make notes of next year’s plant and seed orders.
We do still have a surplus of the following produce:
Butternut Squash, Delicata Squash, large and small Spaghetti Squash, popcorn ears (fun for the kids), Speckled Hound Pumpkin Squash, Naples Long Pie Pumpkin, Long Island Cheese Squash, sweet yellow onions and red onions. If you are interested in ordering or have questions, please call us at 775-867-3750 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org

How to Cook the Popcorn Cobs from eHow site:
Please pull our corn cobs out of the plastic bag and allow to air dry for 4-5 weeks before trying to pop the kernels.
1 paper lunch sack
Serving dish (optional)
Melted butter (optional)
Place one popcorn cob into a paper lunch sack. Fold the top of the sack over once and tape closed. Place the bag into the microwave and cook on HIGH power for 1-1/2 minutes to 3 minutes. The amount of time will be based upon your microwave’s power and the size of the popcorn ear. Remove the bag from the microwave when the popping slows down to about 1 to 2 pops per second. Open the bag carefully, to avoid steam, and turn the popped popcorn cob out into a bowl, or just eat the popcorn off the cob from inside the bag. Serve with melted butter and salt if desired. You can also use this same technique to pop three tablespoons of popcorn kernels per bag.
