Clear­ing corn and cour­gettes

Garden News (UK) - - What To Do -

My sweet­corn crop this year was one of the best ever and many cobs were not only con­sumed straight from the plant but many now also re­side in my freezer for win­ter ‘tasties’. These tall, woody stems are stand­ing high in the sky and it’s time to re­move them. They’re dif­fi­cult to com­post but I cut them into short lengths and spread them through my large com­post heap. Any or­ganic ma­te­rial can be com­posted and noth­ing is wasted on my plot. While clean­ing those away, the courge es that grew among them can also fol­low them on to the com­post heap.

Old courge es are com­posted
