I was very surprised to see how about half our planted corn was already ready to harvest yesterday. I think that it being planted right next to the chicken coop makes it grow faster rather than burn up like many other plants would. We use all of the plant after harvesting. The silk is dried and used for stuffing or hair for our corn dolls. The husks are used for the body of the corn dolls and the rest of the plant is bundled and hung to dry for decorations this Fall.
Corn dolls are a very old tradition. In the days of the Old Religion, the thought was that the goddess of the crops, Brigid would have nowhere to live in the Winter when the crops were done and Winter was here. So corn dolls were made in her Spirit and they were brought inside to live until they were returned to the Earth the next Spring. This was usually done on Imbolc and the idea was to return life to the soil. By honoring her in this way, she would bless your crops that year.
This is a pretty good site with simple directions are crafting your own corn doll for Lammas:
However, if you decide you want to purchase one already made you can visit the Cynnamon Charmed shop and there will be some available soon. Blessed Be!
