Sweet Corn Passes the Wasp Test

Saturday morning into the early afternoon was wet with a short but very heavy spell of rain over lunchtime. The day’s total came to 11.0mm or 0.43in. It put gardening on hold for the day.
We’ve tried a new variety of sweetcorn this year called Extra Early Sweet. It’s done okay but a combination of me planting the seeds a little bit late and some cool weather through most of summer have probably reduced the crop. The cobs we have picked have been very sweet.
This wasp obviously thought so as it made the most of some bits of left over kernels remaining on a cob.
