Questions about growing sweet corn

Posted: 01/04/2017 at 15:34

Hi Chris


Sow seeds straight into well prepared  soil


Make a diamond formation with the pointed end facing the prevailing wind direction much like the set up for ten pin bowling. The plants will have the best chance of being pollinated


You obviously know how to grow sweet corn but its just a matter of luck if you get a good harvest


Make a detailed note of what you do and when and what the soil is like etc and then next season you can be even better


Potatoes are the easiest and sweetcorn and one of the most fussy...........bit like children


Good luck and good eating


PS...........please dont start a sentence with so

Peel and cut into chip shapes and boil for 15 mins and then fry in olive oil with some chilli powder


!Chilli Sweet Potato Chips " are good
