I've taken my share of harassment, for getting the water boiling,before I pick the corn. A friend brought a camp stove, and a pan, and set it up in the garden. After the water was boiling, he bent a cornstalk over, and cooked the corn, before it was picked. (no improvement, that I could detect) He still thought I was crazy, until he heard it, on a garden program, on television.
I won't eat my own corn, if its taken to a family party, because its stale. Ed
