This year I thought I would be brave and try to grow my own sweet corn. I wasn't sure if it would be worthwhile, but I planted about 8 plants, and occasionally remembered to water them.
It was well worth doing. Last night, we ate corn fresh from the veg patch, and it was absolutely lip-smackingly delicious. I couldn't stop saying "yum".
The variety was a particularly sweet one - F1 Swift - and we've had long spells of hot weather, so the cobs have ripened nicely. In short, a successful experiment, and one I plan to repeat next year.
