I looked at the sweetcorn Swift F1 cobs during the week as the silks had turned dark brown and I could feel the kernels through the sheaths. I decided to give them a few more days in the warm sunshine but yesterday morning I succumbed to temptation and picked the one off the plant that was leaning somewhat.
Clearing up a somewhat overgrown corner I came across this young oak tree. Like others that I’ve previously found growing I shall leave it be for a while as it’s out of the way. I guess that birds or squirrels bury acorns and these are ones that they forgot.
I’ve not mentioned the other, larger plot trees for ages mainly because there’s been not much to tell. The hawthorn didn’t blossom nor has it produced any berries, perhaps because I’ve been pruning it at the wrong time. Next year I’ll leave it be and see what happens.

Last week’s glorious weather has continued through the weekend but next week looks like being mostly overcast and cooler.
