I have a new Dahlia tuber... Trelissick Purple... grows very tall in tropical Cornwall... but will it do as well in Hampshire.

Hey Verd. when you encourage us poor mortals to grow stuff you should put out a health warning about where you live and the lovely climate!!!

Hi GG thought I would leave a clue or two that I had been there before you, probably about 1957, glad to see that it still survives after all this time.  in those days the Saints played at the Dell and I rode on my Father's shoulders, not a train., although the steam engines ran at the bottom of my road and we used to stand in the steam as they ran under the footbridge. My other name is Sooty!

Yes, what a lovely idea to sow wild flowers. What if "set-aside" came with the obligation to sow wild flowers...WOW

Well said TT. there are too many sensible and nice people on the Forkers threads for us to lose the plot. A little bit of patience and we shall be home and dry.

I think GG just needs someone to talk to... she will come around, but I think she finds the new thread a bit manic... no thanks to you know who.

Gardengirl is over on the Evening thread, and I think she is a bit lonely... some of her friends need to pop in and speak to her?

Hey Gg I was born near the northam rail yards. The movement of the goods wagons used to keep me awke at night.

I agree that the new thread is a bit manic, let's hope it settles down and that we all feel we can be together again. Would be a shame not to be energised by your enthusiasm. Perhaps Brumbull can rejoin too?

It must be freezing at Sholing, now that the wind is from Siberia, and so soon in the year.

Keep up the good work.

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.
