Have just picked an armful of sweet peas, with aroma filling the kitchen. Flower show at weekend and have put in for 10 categories. I have never done this before so am heading for humiliation.. but who cares. Watering absolutely essential now or I will lose loads. That's a job my wife loved doing.

Andy... you can go to the top of the class today, and a gold star.

Verd, Cornwall played better on day 2, but poor effort on day one leaves them likely to lose today, unless they bowl Wilts out cheaply. Have lost some good players since winning the minor counties championship last year. 2 good young players batted beautifully yesterday. Lovely to watch. Dinner with good friends and home by 11pm.

Who said "winter"... go to the back of the class and stay behind later.

Good morning , quick water and off to see cricket match, Cornwall v. Wiltshire at Corsham, meeting best friends who are cricket nuts. Longstock Water Gardens are certainly worth a visit. Owned by the John Lewis partnership, they open for 2 Sundays each month for charity. Yesterday the local Rotary raised money for stroke charity. Gardens are a series of interconnected ponds, streams. Planting is on a damp/wet lovers theme as well as lilies etc in the water. Great tree specimens too.

Cake can also be enjoyed!!

Earlier when only very hot, rather than b....y hot, I refreshed the display by the front door. Pansies and violas removed to be chopped back and kept in secret out of the way place, and replaced by massed ranks of Gazanias... from cool to HOT,HOT,HOT.

read papers in garden, with strong coffe and perfume from roses and Philadelphus. Off to lunch and water gardens soon.....

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.
