Hi Pat  

I've just been watching the most beautiful sunrise - a pinky/golden glow over the whole sky - it makes me think of Pa who often had difficult nights in his last few years; he'd get the staff to get him out of bed early and sit him in his reclining chair facing the window in his room so that he could watch the sun coming up over the sea    If there'd been a good sunrise he'd always tell me about it when I visited

Shoots already!

Not all the kernels have been pollinated, so that's part of the problem.  And I think that maybe they've been left on the plant too long and they're over ripe
