Wrinkly hands, large brain.
Oh that's funny.
So this is not quite my first corn for a while, but it's most certainly been the tastiest. This variety is called Golden Bantam, an heirloom variety from Eden Seeds. Only 7 weeks ago it was just a little tacker, in the second photo here, so it's really grown quite quickly. These two are the best cobs I've had so far, the ears are sweet and fresh, and really lovely and light to eat.
In my humble opinion, freshly picked corn doesn't seem to fill you up as much as supermarket corn. I have read that the moment sweet corn is picked, the sugars start transforming into starch, so you should set the water onto the boil before you trundle out to the garden.
Which is exactly what we did.
