Is this corn ready?

The right one feels fat and bumpy , is it worth perling naba the leaves to check?

    That is what I do. I peel the leaves back carefully to see if the kernels look full and yellow. If they are still small and white, smooth them back again.

    You'll grow a lot more next year ... we've got over 20 plants and each has at least two cobs ... and there's only two of us  B)

    Swift germination was 100% this year for me ... with a little bit of bottom heat. Marvellous 🙂

    What's the best way to cook them? Judging by the above photos, ours look almost ready too, but I haven't grown them before.

    Peel them and plunge in boiling salted water for 8-10 mins. Take out, drain and serve with butter and black pepper. 

    Or peel, cut into halves so you have ‘short cobs’ smother with butter and roast around a roasting chicken for the last half hour’s cooking time. 

    Both delicious. 😋
