I agree if you have a stem a bud is likely to be lurking in there somewhere...

The current level of population in the world cannot be fed by organic food alone; it's too inefficient a use of the available land. Mass production of affordable food to feed the billions is only possible if farmers and scientists work together to maximise and then increase production. 

What I object to is the bald conjecture that chemicals equals bad, and no chemicals equals good. 

My old chemistry teacher would probably remind us at this point that everything is made of chemicals. It's how we manage their use that is the issue. If side effects are a worry to you I suggest you stop taking the medicine?

If you spray for blackspot very early in the year just as the buds first show you can have clean roses and with a minimum effect on bugs. Do it on a windless cloudy day also.

Hi Dove, I think it was Adblock Plus. It may have been on another thread. I was all over the place yesterday. I have Safari. 

Perhaps Chicky will see this and help you.

Hi Verd, guess you got a good view from the front of the queue , once it got light enough!

By the way Chicky's adblocker is great. It even tells me how many have been binned.

I have one looking just like this in full glorious technicolour... it's a good doer all year and leaves up earlier than most too. Shame it doesn't have edible pears too.

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.
