Trolls, on the corner of your desk in exams - I didn't have one - I didn't see the point -  they all thought I was odd

That looks over-ripe to me Rinus - I think that looks as if it's ready to dry, for popcorn and Mexican dishes etc. 

I wouldn't wait until the husk is dry and brown if I wanted to eat it as Corn on the Cob - it'll be hard and tough

This article should help


Rats, cats and bids

If you've got rats established there, rather than just the odd visitor, I'd get professional pest controllers in and sort them out properly.

I agree with Tetley - you don't like them, they don't look good so get rid!!!

You may not need to grind the stumps out - if you cut them down but leave a 4 ft trunk you can use as a lever, as the ground softens in the winter you should be able to 'rock' them out - they're quite shallow rooted. 

That'll save you money to put towards a fence and new shrubs

Rhubarb variety

I've never noticed an unpleasant aftertaste with rhubarb - I wonder whether you're picking it too late in the season?

Oooh Snoodle ... poor you .... afraid it's that time of year - all summer people go away on holiday and get new bugs and then bring them back to nursery/school to infect everyone else

 Here you are!
