Outside at Last! by Catherine Evans :: 17th January 2010

The snow has finally gone – at least for the moment and it has been wonderful to get outside today. I have reorganised the bins with a view to creating a seating area by the back door and started tidying up in the garden. I started to dig up the sweetcorn stalks, then noticed some ladybirds hiberbating inside one of the husks so have left them for the moment – if you look carefully at the photo you will see one on the right hand cob. I have just pulled back some of the husk to expose the corn below in the hope that the birds will find it. Perhaps it’s not such a waste to grow baby corn and then not pick it after all!
