I have sown 24 chitted seeds of Sweetcorn Swift today to grow on a little before planting out on the corn bed later at the end of May or early June. They were chitted by laying them on damp kitchen paper with another layer on top, sealed in a plastic sandwich box and left in the airing cupboard for two days. They emerged looking like little devils with two horn like shoots making it difficult to decide which way up to plant them. This was the first variety of sweetcorn bred with a very thin skin on the kernels that greatly improved the eating qualities. It is well adapted to UK growing conditions and cobs are juicy, sweet and full of flavour. I have put the box back into the airing cupboard with the last of the baby corn seeds in to chit. Update on 11th May; young plants are now in their permanent bed on plot 8.
