Vallis Veg - Sweetcorn Grown At Vallis Veg
One large or 2 smaller sweetcorn cobs grown here at Vallis Veg. Deliciously sweet, best enjoyed lightly steamed and then slathered in butter, or alternatively lime juice, chilli and salt, yum.
Unlike the many big fields of maize grown around here where the crop is direct-sown (and is ultimately destined to be eaten by cows) we raised and transplanted by hand 1000 corn plants to ensure we make full use of our limited growing space. 2021 has been a good one for corn with some of the plants well over 10ft tall and with lots of lovely big juicy cobs approaching ripeness - so we're on guard against badgers with an electric fence (hopefully) keeping them out!
