Planted 3 Geranium Anne Folkard, Sowed runner beans in beds and in a pot under wigwams. Planted loads of violas in an old wheelbarrow , old buckets and watering cans... all with holes in them!!

Repositioned pots of hostas in shade on new terrace near house. Loads of watering. Have we ever had to do so much watering at this time of year before?

Start dampish, and a few holes might not hurt the process.

Open gardens this year, in June. Have been renovating almost all of garden. Now beginning to see benefits of all the chopping and replanting etc.

I have a nice new terrace and furniture, made from recycled scaffolding planks ( made in Scotland), and sitting there with test match on radio and cup of tea is too tempting!!

Lots happening in the garden too, almost too much to list. Sorry for being so tardy.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
