  1. Does anyone know who grew/donated the corn-on-the-cob that I bought at the veg stall after the show? The corn was just beautiful, and so fresh – reminded me of my earlier years in New York where you picked the corn or bought it from the farm stand and ran from the car to the pot of boiling water, because every hour added after the corn’s picked means it’s less sweet. Most corn here has been shipped from god knows where, so to have two ears of corn that definitely tasted local was just amazing! Would just like to thank the grower(s) if they can be identified! And would gladly book a purchase nest summer!

  2. Heather Bryceland who grew 2 although there were 2 entries of corn and I can’t remember who grew the second lot , perhaps Jim A.
