This is the first time I’ve ever grown sweetcorn and these are the first two we’ve picked. The plants were grown from seed sent to me from Greece by Gaia’s hope. They’re a variety that need very little watering, so they’re well suited to the conditions here and in Greece. They’ve produced some nice big cobs, and this evening we peeled off the outer leaves and cooked these first two over charcoal on the barbecue, with one of our small aubergines. When they were cooked we added salt and some olive oil and they tasted wonderful.
