Another terrible pun title today. I feel like I should apologise for it but I find puns mildly amusing in an “oh now that’s bad” way, so I won’t.
Anyway – the corn I planted seems to be doing well so far… not that there’s much to see.
Of the 55 Strawberry Popcorn and 44 Seville sweetcorn I sowed, 48 popcorn and 7 sweetcorn were up as of this morning.
As the Strawberry Popcorn have been popping up (pun not intended, this time) for about a week with no sign of the Seville sweetcorn I was starting to think I’d done something wrong and was going to get nothing, but I saw the first shoots of green in the Seville pots today. Worry over.
This has only opened up a whole new worry though (no surprise there). What on earth am I going to do with anything up to 99 pots of corn before it’s warm enough to evict them from the house!? They are all in 3″ pots at the moment, but I don’t think for a moment that they’ll be able to stay in them for long.
5″ pots would take up 18 and a bit square feet (1.7 square metres) and if they needed to go up a size again to 7″ pots, that’s 35 square feet (3.25 square metres)!!!
I think I’m going to need a bigger house.
