Sweet Corn Query!! Pardon my complete and utter ignorance about growing sweetcorn. Attached is a couple of photos of the corn as it is at the moment. What is it growing at the top? Is that the male bit that has to polinate the female bit (for want of a better description!!). Some of the plants seem to be growing something further down the main stem betwen the stem and the leaf join - I can put a photo on if necessary - are these the actual cobs being produced? What should happen now? X certificate stuff?
