Good Evening FORKERS

Just in case you missed my missive on the "morning Forkers" thread we will NOT tolerate any references to "Autumn" until at least 1 November.

We are now into a  period called "late summer" and anyone using the "A": word is in real trouble. Fines, payable to my favourite charity, will be eye watering.

Morning each, walked aroung my garden with friend yesterday and was surprised to see just how thirsty everything looked, so I know what I shall be doing this morning.

Talking of spring bulbs am off to my favourite Malvern show at end of month. It's an annual pilgrimage... loads of lovely everything in the bulb/corm/rhyzome etc line. Can't wait.

Watering done, picked sweet peas, swept GH of zillions of dead flies (once in they don't seem to know what a door is for). Sweetcorn cob for lunch and feet up until friend visits garden this afternoon.

Hi Verd, had short visit to Cornwall to see Cornwall play Dorset. First 2 days rained off, so visited Trebah (my favourite Cornish valley garden) Glendurgan which never fails to disappoint, and Heligan, which I saw last when it first opened , or is that reopened. Anyway cricket finally started on day3 and with my help Cornwall won against all the odds. I must be their lucky mascot. Stayed at Mannings in Truro... to be recommended. Used to stay at Budock Vean with my wife... great favourite.

If it's a small infestation regular picking/pulling will eventually weaken it and you will triumph.

Did the Olympics leave a legacy?

Yes it did, we got to watch fewer Gardeners' World programmes

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.
