Enough is enough

I sat there thinking about Lamorna.I used to do a lot of diving out of Lamorna The rocks shown at the left hand edge of the cove are known as the Cannon site,some old cannons were found there from a Shipwreck. Doing a giant stride entry off the harbour wall was interesting.  An old man was walking through the cove one day,I was sure I knew him. Hello, I said , and smiled.He smiled back andsaid Hello.  It wasn't until he was half way up the path on the other side of the cove that I remembered.John Le Carre , he has a house overlooking the sea half way between Lamorna and Porthcurno.

Potatoes in grow bags

Dont reuse compost that has had potatoes in for any of the potato family, including tomatoes, as it will spread disease.  If growing in soil in the garden, practise a three year rotation.

I like the Nigel and Nellie programme. I also like the gardening bits in between.   Friday night is my "what will I do with a big lottery win?" night with a glass of wine and a bag of crisps. Adam Frost has the garden I would like. Whether he does the same as i would?  well I'm not likely to win it . But I can dream , can't I?

If you don't like it, watch something else.

Corn on the Cob

I do same as Dove. We have a sweet corn fest all September. We have finished them now so we are back to tinned until next year. Fresh sweet corn grown yourself can never be bettered. Stuff that has been hanging around after picking is not the same.

I too  would be concerned. after all the usual scammers do a random phone call... we are from microsoft errrm I got a Mac.  How on earth do they know who has a heart monitor? And we are told that all our records on computer are safe. Hmmm.

Quite a few  flowers for cutting can be sown now. They make earlier flowers and larger than Spring sown.  Think Calendula, Nigella, cornflower, Ammi majus.
