In 9 minutes time she shows planting the seed by hand, growth, harvesting the crop by hand, drying-shelling-grinding and, finally, cooking over a fire and eating it. And the flowers are blooming everywhere.

I found it a beautiful thing to watch

I love to garden and cook so it was enjoyable to watch. I like her interaction with her elderly relative, reminded me of being with my grandma. I now want to learn to make baskets to make one like the one she used to harvest the corn lol. Thank you for sharing!

Interesting, no men in the household and the three dogs all looked good. Very pretty young lady, wonder if she only farms. She certainly seems to know how to work! China has an army worm problem that is devastating areas of corn, iirc. Life depends on a good harvest.

I find it interesting how much equipment she uses. From the very simple, like baskets, sifters, the drying rack and mat, up to the more complicated grinder and fanning mill she must have used nearly 100 different tools. I would also like to know what the wet grinding process was. Was it nixtimal or something else? I would like to know more about all the ways she cooked the corn. The final meal looks like something you could find in the soutwest US or in Mexico.

Judging my the green color of the husks, the corn she was grinding was not dry' I am guessing, of course
