Last Chance Fun: Corn Mazes

Monday, October 15, 2012

WNYC

I talk about fleeting opportunities for seasonal eating during my regular Friday segment, Last Chance Foods — last week I spoke with Kurt Alstede of Alstede Farms about the waning days of the sweet corn season.  

Also fleeting are your chances to get lost in a corn maze. For me, they are a wonder-inducing activity that marks the passing of summer into fall, like jumping into a pile of fallen leaves, carving a wicked grin into a pumpkin or Halloween trick-or-treating.
