I’m still not home and it looks like I’ve missed my sweet corn harvest. Oh well, there’s always next year. My neighbours said the corn tasted great so it’s had someone to appreciate it. John just got back from a trip away and he thinks it may be past its prime. (Yes, he actually abandoned his post and left the watering can in the capable hands of my neighbour.) I have to say, based on this photo, I agree with him. Not to worry, I’ll watch the next crop like a hawk.
This crop was planted on 29 September and was ready for eating in less than 4 months. And, if I’m quick (I’m not sure I will be) I can plant another crop as soon as I’m home (may have crop rotation issues?). Corn can be sown in Sydney from Sept to Feb.
Check out the photo below. It looks like my tomatoes and zucchini are doing well too!
