Do the cobs deteriorate if left on the plant too long? Was just wondering if it would be better to freeze them rather than leave on the plant.

I have grown sweetcorn for the first time this year - quite successfully.  When harvesting should I take all the cobs off or can they be left on until needed?

tomatoes

I was going to post about my tomatoes.  I have loads of green tomatoes - all grown in the greenhouse - but no ripe ones at all.   I always grow tomatoes but have never had to wait this long for them to ripen. Is it just one of those years?

First time I have grown them, and they have nearly taken over my greenhouse.  Loads of fruit now, although they did take a but of time to get going.   However now I have enough to supply the whole village 

Bees

As a beekeeper I feel I can answer this.  Honey bees swarm when their colony has become too large for their home, whether it be a hive or eg tree stump.  The colony make queen cells from which obviously new queens are hatched.  As soon as the workers seal the queen cells, the old queen takes off with approx. half of the colony to begin a new colony elsewhere.  Sometimes a lucky beekeeper catches the swarm (a free colony for him/her) sometimes they take up residence elsewhere.  I have to say that a swarm of bees is a truly lovely sight as they are doing what comes naturally to them.  I know they look alarming but they are only interested in finding a new home.

hydrangea problem?

It is now growing in the garden. Perhaps I should feed it?

No not in direct sunlight and get plenty of watering.  It is as if I have grown a new strain.  It looks quite healthy - just with white leaves.
