something has had a good feast glad I harvested quite a bit and froze it !!
some people are like slinkys......they're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face as you push them down the stairs!!

How strange! Something started on mine too this week. Harvested the last of it today - while I still had some! :)

Rats, badgers and squirrels have all been implicated by folk on here in the past (hopefully not all 3 in your cases though!)   :ohmy:

Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Certainly squirrels, I am guessing rats although I have only ever seen dead ones, also mice and rabbits. Wonder if it could be those as well?

That is definitely worth knowing, I have been blanching mine. :)

pinging? do you mean microwaving? I haven't tried that.

I bung mine in for about 5 mins on full (for a single cob).  I remove the clingfilm first.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
