Ham, Potato, Corn and Spinach Chowder

So, I am home by myself and starving. I got to thinking about soup I had as a child with farmer's sausage and potato. While I am living in Canada again for the first time in years and actually have farmer's sausage in my freezer, I also had left over ham. So, here is my take on a hearty, yummy soup that most people can probably make with leftovers from a big ham dinner. Give it a whirl, I think you will be pleased. Note that I added a kind of weird ingredient of greek sour cream because I thought it would add a nice sourness to the soup (kind of like buttermilk) and I happened to have some in the house. I think regular sour cream (but probably not lowfat) would work too.
