They were called 'I wish I made a note of it'.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

They don't last long do they? I'm fortunate in the fact that I don't have to worry about growing space, so now I'd never consider less than 100 plants.  But you have to cut your suit according to the cloth.

No use planting all sweetcorn & getting no variety.

Those are superb sweetcorn, DD!

I sowed about 30 seeds in June (late, I know), and only 2 or 3 came out of those. Gilbert felt sorry for me and sowed some in pots and gave me to plant out a few weeks later (July). I got some corn, but they were not the best I've ever eaten - the cobs were mainly under developed, they were sweet, but could have been sweeter, and the last few times they've been extra tough. I've 2 more to harvest (will do so today), they feel fuller, but I won't be holding my breath. Still, I'm happy with what I got considering! Roll on 2008!
