I got a shock yesterday when I went to my plot. My beautiful home grown sweetcorn, which was perfectly ripe and was to be picked for freezing was a gonner!
Sweetcorn growing and ripening
I could weep! There was I looking forward to munching on fresh corn for dinner tonight, and planning on freezing batches of it for winter. Humph and grumph, the Badgers got there fisrt. So memo to self, when your corn is ripe and ready for picking, PICK IT, don’t leave it for another week.
I guess I’ll just have to hold onto the positives – we did get to eat and enjoy some of the corn, just not all of it 🙂
