It rained for much of Tuesday and was rather windy at times so I was relieved to see that nothing was amiss when I looked round yesterday morning. Generally the plot is looking well past its best now what with dead potato foliage and plenty of weeds. A notable lack of proper plotting over the past couple of weeks hasn’t helped either.
On Monday I noticed that a few of the sweet corn cob silks were quite brown so yesterday I carefully peeled the sheath back on one just enough to see that the grains at the end were yellow and milky. This is what it looked like after I’d removed the sheath.
Needless to say it was delicious cooked then eaten with butter and black pepper.
I’ve picked lots of beans now as well as blackberries, and a couple of cucumbers Marketmore. I ate the last of the first early potatoes Lady Christl yesterday, and have to say that they’re an excellent variety so will grow them again next year.
I haven’t seen many butterflies around this week but plenty of bees were buzzing round especially on the cosmos,
Have a good weekend!
