Think those wildebeest have been through here too.  Expecting them to be followed by schools of porpoises if this keeps up much longer

Hope the back eases soon Pdoc.  Go easy on that credit card

Some sunshine here, but don't think it will last long.  Think my waterbutts should be nearly full again now.

on Swallows and Amazons .....read them all when I was a child ...They didn't mean to go to Sea was my favourite.   Think thats a Broads one.  Enjoy them Pat

I'd post a new thread LMS - there are a few tomato experts on the forum, but they're unlikely to look in on a sweetcorn thread.

our silk tassles are now going brown - will be harvesting a few this week (with my umbrella)

Morning all. And good luck to Mr Yvie at the eye hospital.

Choc cake looks scrummy - hope a special day was had by all the Fairies

Botswana sounds exciting Pdoc - hope the hiking bit is away from big animals.  

And hope LilyP's swallow found his way outside.  Once spent a night with a starling behind our wardrobe .....not much sleep was had, but he flew off happily the next morning looking none the worse for his ordeal.

got a full week at work this week - that'll be a shock to the system ....I'll be needing a day off by Tuesday.

best get started ......
