Always sit in the shade when it is this hot and sunny, is always good advice... just 20 mins for my vitaminD... especially for the ladies and there bones

Making absolutely no reference to "that" subject I am sitting in my garden posting this, listening to England v. SA on the tranny. Gentle wanders around estate from time to time, a deadhead here and a deadhead there, then back to seat for a rest. Perhaps a bit of Ascot this afternoon, and local village cricket this evening. What have I done to deserve this? Have just eaten some raw broadbeans straight from the plant. Beats cake hands down.

JAB with added JI is better than plain JAB which is very poor this year.

What's the weather like in your area?

Warm, humid, a day for enjoying the garden... maybe a gentle potter around but definitely no lifting.

I leave my flowers and stalks on for some time to continue the show, altho' you can take off the head and most of the stalk when colour is gone and seeds forming.  Leave a couple of inches to mark the position of the bulb below, in case you forget where it is. You might plant something on top!!!

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.
