A while back I posted about our Three Sisters
experiment and so far it has yielded several kilos of green beans and 11 Austrian oilseed pumpkins and there are about 15 other squash on the way, especially buttercup which is our favourite but a couple of others as well. They wont be ready for a few more weeks but right now we are getting into the second sister. Corn.
Yesterday we picked 16 cobs which is about a third of what we expect to get from our tyres and we are pretty happy with the outcome. Settin aside for a moment the fact that it is utterly delicious sweet corn that looks perfect as well,the really satisfying bit is that we took a scrape over 1.9 KG of kernels from that lot, a bit over 100gm per cob. If we can keep that up we will see around 6KG of product; I can live with that, hell, I can nearly live ON that.
