I decided it was time to investigate one of the sweetcorn cobs. Was it ready or not?
In the same patch, there was also a cucumber which I felt was ready to pick, even though it was very small. But as you can see, it was much better formed than the sweetcorn.
I’m not totally au fait with how sweetcorn develop, so perhaps the kernels at the end of the cob would have matured and turned yellow. However, the ones I did eat were superb. Nothing like anything you could ever buy, so fresh were they. I think I will leave the other cobs a bit longer, though.
