We have had a bumper crop this year too - netted them for the first time.  We were picking from mid June til early August.  I have two plants of the same variety - Earliblue

Hope the back eases soon Pdoc.  Go easy on that credit card

Some sunshine here, but don't think it will last long.  Think my waterbutts should be nearly full again now.

on Swallows and Amazons .....read them all when I was a child ...They didn't mean to go to Sea was my favourite.   Think thats a Broads one.  Enjoy them Pat

I'd post a new thread LMS - there are a few tomato experts on the forum, but they're unlikely to look in on a sweetcorn thread.

our silk tassles are now going brown - will be harvesting a few this week (with my umbrella)

Morning all. And good luck to Mr Yvie at the eye hospital.

Choc cake looks scrummy - hope a special day was had by all the Fairies

Botswana sounds exciting Pdoc - hope the hiking bit is away from big animals.  

And hope LilyP's swallow found his way outside.  Once spent a night with a starling behind our wardrobe .....not much sleep was had, but he flew off happily the next morning looking none the worse for his ordeal.

got a full week at work this week - that'll be a shock to the system ....I'll be needing a day off by Tuesday.

best get started ......

I grew the Chelsea collection from Eagle this year- they have been fantastic.  Will be an Eagle devotee from now on....thank you David

I have a question though, my spring sown ones are now too tall for me to reach to pick.  Can I chop the tops of the plants off and get more flowers shooting lower down, or is it too late in the year for that sort of malarkey??
