Homegrown sweetcorn. After having to replant my sweetcorn patch, due to the late frost killing all the plants, we seem to have a good crop. Each plant has two or three good sized cobs. In fact, the whole garden is doing well. Our meal tonight was totally from the garden, bar a handful of cheese I added. Homegrown apple juice to wash it all down with. We made three more litres this weekend.
I’m now making fig ice cream (no, I’ve not heard of it before, but we are being overwhelmed by figs from our tree) and drinking homegrown mint tea. Just call me Barbara.
(For those of you who didn’t grew up in 1970s Britain, Barbara was a character in a sitcom and was our self-sufficiency hero)
