Corn

NO, NO, NO.  The so-called seed head is the male part of the sweelcorn.  Remove it and you won't get any sweetcorn.

Got my tomatoes ripening now by cutting some


of the foliage back.

Variety identification

In, probably, October take three apples and a small branch with leaves to an Apple Day.  They are held all over the country.  There will be someone there who will identify your apple.
