At last the highlight of the summer harvest has arrived, my first ever home-grown sweetcorn! I was hoping to reap the benefits of some early planting as the sweetcorn went in the new bed on 17th April and were protected by plastic bottle cloches. You can see their development over the last few months here, (they look tiny on May 25th), here, (a bit taller on June 12th) and here (the cobs had started to form by July 8th).
So I thought I’d check the most developed cob this evening and I’m glad I did as it was perfectly ripe.
I whipped it off the plant, and straight into the pan. Rach and I had half each with butter, salt and pepper, it was heaven!
