Thanks KEF but we have great local meat in our village shop. Some of it is rare breed from a mile away.

Off into garden for a good hacking workout.

There has been a lot of comment on the cost of these gardens, rightly so, and the programme makers seem to be promoting the opposite philosophy of the rest of us who garden on a budget, often shoestring in size. I blame the RHS and its Chelsea gardens. How long before we get the first million pound garden, being drooled over by TV pundits and celebrities.

The rest of us rely on bargains from the GC, propagating our own plants. swopping plants with friends and neighbours, pinching cuttings, our own labour and efforts etc, etc. That's the real world of gardening. How about a gardening programme solely focused on gardening for free, or as near as dammit. That would be really useful.

Have a very happy day Chicky. Been there done that it's not that bad. Embrace it.

Phew, that was close.... loaded new operating system update on here and lost my GW settings. Have somehow found my way back in, and this is by way of a test. 

Knock, knock, can I come in please?

Sorry Chicky, I didn't see you there on your bone shaker. How was Beth? and Hyde?

Hi Bekkie, best to take your H'Hog to a rescue centre. They will give it antibiotics, feed it up etc. I took one in after 2 of it's siblings died in my garden. It got a very fat and I got a very happy hedgehog back after a few weeks.

Welcome home Bill. Trust you are gearing up for the odd flurry of snow.

Lovely day yesterday on the Isle of Wight watching a master craftsman make some lovely studio glass. Some of it seemed to make its way home with me.

Did anyone see the fantastic sky this morning. So clear, squillions of stars and a new moon. Lovely

Hi Gg agree Parham is lovely. It is very near where my best friend used to live so went there a few times.

Chicky, BC's is great at the mo'. Saw HH a few year's ago and saw grasses in a new light.

Verd... my "faster broadband for villages" is stalled at present. The various authorities in the New Forest are arguing over "loss of grazing" for the ponies due to the construction of a new Box, which is all of a couple of square feet! You couldn't make it up. Should I write to David Cameron or phone the BBC. It's scandalous.

hello all, still no progress on planting bulbs... too much stuff happening to get in the way. Never mind, it's all in a good cause.

4th Panda... we don't have a facility for you to buy a calendar online but if you PM me with your address I can get one to you. That applies to all you other forkers too. I am afraid that with the postage (ouch) and a special envelope the price increases to £9-50p.

Have a great day,y'all.

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.
