Plant them in pots, wait about 6 months and they will tell you what they are. (my guess is to say muscari too) you could also pop a couple in your pocket and go and compare them with what is available in the garden centres. You will soon find something similar/same.

Dunces rule here too. Today I did a clothes wash to specifically wash some trousers I need next week. Filled washing m/c, full load. Started. Sometime later discovered I am still wearing said trousers, and have just washed a completely clean pair.

Evening each, planted up vegetable bed...garlic, spinach, chard, spring(late summer) onions... a bit late but better than leaving soil empty... should get some returns. Hoping rain overnight will kick start them.

Friend gave me some very tall heleniums... so chopped them back and potted up for next year.

General tidy up and some watering. Very hot so came in and collapsed.

Temperature collapse expected tomorrow, so need to stock up with cake.

I gave up ordering from T&M years ago after a truly appalling experience... they lost a good customer.

Beautiful (late summer) morn. The corn is as high as an elephant's eye and I don't have to go to work.

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.

As a schoolboy I remember great weather in September every year without fail. That's what I anyway thats what ...... what was I saying?

In this house and garden the use of the word "Autumn" is prohibited until at least 1 November. Please be advised we are now in "late summer"  Anyone using the "A" word will be sent to see me following which a large fine paid to my favourite charity will ensue. Evening forkers will not be exempt.

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.
