Week 27: Goodbye Sweetcorn & Calabrese, And Hello Chillis, Leeks and Sprouts…

So it’s Goodnight from my Sweetcorn. Having enjoyed only a few Corns, they’ve dried up and finished with some Pigeons probably enjoyed the kernels of deliciousness! Evidence of “eating” has been spotted close by the corns and on closer inspection, some of kernels had not formed well which is probably down to my sporadic watering and the weather. (Like any good gardener, if you’re not too sure: blame the weather!).

Week 27 and I have peppers (although only the green plants seem to be fruiting) with the Yellow and Red plants still in flower.

And tasty Leeks. I have harvested one Musselburgh leek to try and taste. It was lovely with some butter and looking forward to trying the other different types.

And Finally…

After hardening off my seedlings in Week 9, and transferring onto the plot in Week 11, I can see little Sprouts forming!
