Oooh get rid of the mint and put a clump into a pot ASAP, as it is v. invasive. Plants like sweet corn do better in blocks for pollination reasons. I have read that if you are planting in rows have them going North to South, not sure if this is important. Rows are easier to hoe/weed between. Good luck with it all, it is a good size for close planting. Try to get 'The Vegetable and herb expert' book, by Dr. D G. Hessayon

that will give you planting distances it has a chart showing closer distances for the 'bed' system.

Fairygirl; these big corporations need us ALL to be on their case; they appear to have no morality as normal people know it and need to be constantly reminded to behave. A letter to the CEO usually makes them respond.

I love the idea of a veg CD. Perhaps called 'Lettuce sing'...I'll get my coat.

Nut, am so glad you've been there, my favourite plant; a tree peony with massive white flowers came from there.

It could also be 'wind burn', does the damaged side face the prevailing winds?
