Cricket again today, but Verd. should avert his eyes. Cornwall need a miracle if they are to win. Some rain would help more than my garden! 

Assuming an early finish I will have time to buy some more grasses for the terrace beds, and then can have a planting day tomorrow.

Good morning all, friends staying at moment, down to watch Cornwall play Dorset at cricket in Bournemouth. As a Hampshire lad I can stay neutral and enjoy the scene. Verd., sorry but after a superb start Cornwall were on the receiving end towards evening yesterday and are now in second place. Still it's not over until......

Gardening on hold at moment, so must wait until Wednesday to plant out my alpines, grasses and ferns on and around the new terrace.

Have a good one everyone... I shall be thinking of you from the boundary rope.

Plants planted, HW done and soup made. Just the calendar to go... at least I can sit down for that one...

At the end of the day, home and garden are best. Welcome home Chicky.

Have just logged on and missed OL's news... great luck to you and OH. Trip to Wisley on Tuesday which is looking particularly good at this time. 

Still working on new terrace. Raised beds around trees now filled with soil. Silver birch bed potted with Festuca Elijah blue and mulched with slate. Ash bed filled and will plant with Carex testacea, which is an orange/bronze colour. New troughs filled too, awaiting alpines, some bought at Wizzers.

Today is HW, visitors at weekend; making a batch of soup for friend , who is having major dental surgery tomorrow; and work on village calendar for 2015. Nearly finished, just needs pushing over the line.

Have a few plants to plant first thing as rain is forecast. Rudbeckia and blue scabious to complete the bed I dug out last week.

Lots of showers today so gardening put off to Wednesday. Wizzers tomorrow with the W.I.

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.
