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.

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.

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.

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.
