I have sweetcorn planted this year. Never done it before. I have them planted in a grid, 2 lots of 3X3 (planted 2 weeks apart to try to offset the yield). Any tips for care or do they just look after themselves?
You've discredited yourself, no idea why you are here really.
We've done well with sweetcorn in the past, planting in a grid is the way to do it as they don't fertilise otherwise I believe. We just leave ours and in September harvest - you should put in a pot as soon as you can after picking it - we often sprint down the garden with ours.
So, this is a Chamomile plant, I know that because I planted it there.
But what are these....
Are they tall gangly Chamomile? And if they are, how do i convince them to grow in little mounds like the adult plant?
It's nothing to do with Hans and everything to do with you. You don't post anything nice, every post is a dig. I guess 2 pages of gloating about buying a car with cash was a dig too. It's pathetic, but you know that already, that's why you do it.
That's what I understood chamomile to look like, but I don't think you'll get it to grow in mounds now it's gone leggy.
As an aside, chamolmile gin is the best thing ever.
When you say put in a pot, as it cook it straight away?
The straggly things look like escaped Feverfew.
Talk to them nicely?
Yes, we tend to pick as we go, have the pot boiling on the hob, go and pick and put it straight in.
There's something about the beard that indicates when they are ready - the OH is in charge of the sweetcorn though so I'm not entirely sure what.
Feverfew isn't so wispy though. It has taken over part of our garden.
True. Maybe it's one of those plants that has one 'proper' year, then lets itself go..?
Ah-ha! You have solved my next question before I've posted it! This grows by the back door, it reappears every year, I thought it was a weed, but as it has pretty flowers I've left it where it is...
That plant with a tail in the upper left of the picture. That's one weird weed ...
The yellow one? Aqualeiga
(I don't think that joke worked....)
D'uh! The cat!
It's next doors cat, he stalks me and breaks into our house on any chance he gets, he even defys the expensive magnetic cat flap that was bought to keep him out!
We have just upgraded to a microchip cat flap from a magnetic one. It took Molly a day to get used to, and it bleeps to annouce her arrival but it's pretty good.
Is that a type of geranium mixed in with the feverfew?
We may end up having to get the microchip catflap, within 2 days next doors cat had worked out how to open the magnetic one using a claw to pull it open from outside. He's a lovely & loving cat, unfortunately he likes to pee everywhere, and I mean everywhere!
The geraniums (Wednesday weed or maybe Cranesbill?) are the bane of my life, one small clump has taken over the whole garden. At first they were useful as ground cover to stop cats, now they are everywhere, as fast as I pull them up, they reappear. The bees love them though.
