I would love to welcome you here Verd. When I am next in Cornwall perhaps......

Lovely mellow mistiness today, sun seemingly reluctant to rise over the hill. If I can rouse myself to start early a most enjoyable day beckons. Lots of lovely creativeness, the best bit of gardening for me.

Pictures to follow if I can.

September and October = late summer. 

A*****  starts on 1 November.

Are you clear now?

I don't think frosts are possible with the ground having a store of heat.... at least I very much hope so

Sorry Verd. I couldn't weave any magic this time. I have been a lucky mascot for Cornwall until now... always helping them to win. This time I was a jonah. Last evening when I went for an amble around the ground they lost 2 wickets. This morning I went for a walk again and I had't gone ten paces when you can guess what happened .....anyway my forecast of a Dorset win was unfortunately correct 

The early finish gave me a chance to go to Knoll nursery again and buy some more carex testacea. I also discussed my new grass based layout for my roundabout bed ( in front of my front door) with someone who knows much more about grasses than I,  and identified some possibilities, which I will list on another occasion.

Tomorrow hopefully will be a full day in the garden.

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.

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.
