The last of the sweetcorn was harvested this afternoon

There were a couple of nice fat cobs but the rest were small and patchy,  I will scrape the kernels off the cob and freeze them loose. The tillers produced small thin cobs which looked as if they were not pollinated.  I might take them off in future to concentrate the plant's efforts into making proper cobs.

Planted some horseradish roots (thank you Beverley) ...

...and 10 saffron crocus bulbs.  The crocuses might yield a teaspoonful of saffron next autumn.  I am informed that it needs to be harvested at sunrise with tweezers....I'll look forward to that.

Bought some more onion sets to fill up the empty modules in the tray. Red ones, not sure of the variety.
