I’ve only ever attempted sweetcorn once before, and that was a more baby corn variety.  This was my first proper sweet corn harvest.  Like everything else in the garden this year, they suffered from not being in early enough, and not getting enough sun.  They’re not, even now so late on in the year, fully developed, but I had to get them off the plants before they rotted, or were eaten by something other than us!


They’re very attractive plants to grow though – adding a bit of statuesque grandeur to the garden – so I’d definitely consider growing them again.


So, this represents my tomato crop this year (not including those tomatoes which were eaten by something else before I got to them, or the ones which simply rotted on the plant etc etc).

Impressive, huh?!  😦


First proper harvest from the veg patch yesterday evening – we had pasta with spinach and ricotta – with our own home grown spinach.

Aware that you need to pick more than you think because it cooks down so much, I rather overdid it – but no waste as the hens said they were quite happy to share (in fact, it turned into a bit of a feeding frenzy).

Next on the harvest list – the rhubarb!  😉
