Sometimes it's just easier to get on with it yourself? However is that not how doormattery starts?

Off to "Lunnen" today for lunch with retired work colleagues, one of whom died on Monday, so it will be a day of mixed emotions. Tonight is for the start of the preparations for the Flower show, as we write out all the cards for the hundreds of entries.

Hi, yes I think loft living might be a trifle warm at moment.

OL, my house is well insulated and if I keep windows and doors closed it stays cooler than outside. Bedroom is on northern side and that helps too. Drawing curtains on south side might help again?

Progress report on new Terrace: area completely cleared, and looking grand. Even the machine had problems with the foliage. Not sure how I would have fared had I tried to keep it looking good.

My friend, , says I am in touch with my feminine side, but throwing Y-fronts may be a step too far....doubt if they are Tom's size anyway.

A local rose grower, who wins medals at RHS shows, told our local hortsoc that even disease resistant new roses only keep their resistance for say 12-15 years when mutations of the various diseases creep up on them. He would then advise replanting with even newer varieties. 

I also think it pays to do your very first spray very early in the season when you have not much more than bare branches and bud bumps. Follow Dave's advice above , but start very early. depending on how mild the winter has been, you might be thinking of early March. Go out and have a look then.

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.
