I know this sounds "corny" , but I love fresh corn although here on Long Island its a short season on it. Will I find fresh local corn in any of the supermarkets or farmstands? (Id like to retire in the Granst Pass area)

I have lived in lots of places and never found corn as good as Long Island corn. I am also planning to move from LI and relocate to southern Oregon - Grants Pass to Ashland area.

Does archer refer to your last name or hobby?

Okay as a midwest gal, our corn is decent here, but it is not mid-west corn. Midwest corn is better, but our corn here is quite tasty.

Forget the corn and go for the Hood strawberries and marionberries...yum...

You have my complete agreement. Knee high by the 4th of July in Illinois. Ankle high in Oregon. Not as tasty to my buds.

Now Oregon berries, especially marionberries, oh be still my heart!

Well, some consider Colorado the mid-west, but I don't, and I think Olathe sweet corn is absolutely the best corn ever!!! That's one thing I really miss about living in Western Colorado. I haven't found corn like that here in Oregon yet, but hopefully I will!

Leave the corn in Iowa. There are so many great things to be grown in OR. Just a hint though: OUr summer months are fairly dry, so you'll need irrigation.

I meant the real mid-west. Illinois. Now that is corn. It is so sweet.
