Harvest: 16th Sept

The fields of white maize and sweet corn in Enfield that we visited in the summer are ready for harvesting, so we went to see David Mwanaka in action. Today, he was picking white sweet corn for Sainsburys, whilst a private customer waited at the side of the field for her fresh order.

For Sainsburys, the vegetables have to be driven all the way to Bognor to be packaged, then brought back to the distribution centre right next to Gunpowder Park which seems a bit crazy. We sampled a few – they are even delicious eaten raw.

Purchase: 17th Sept

We find the day’s last remaining packet of white sweet corn from David’s farm.
