    Slightly saddened to learn that the BBC World Service made its last broadcast today from Bush House in London, and their historic home will tonight fall silent after 70 years. The end of an era. Srila Prabhupada was interviewed there, and a kind man from the Swahili Language Broadcasting Service helped me in putting the finishing touches to Srila Prabhupada’s Sri Isopanishad in that language back in 1982. I was interviewed for BBC Radio Ghana there, and sang kirtan to the people of that...

    Another great edible herb in my garden is Perpetual (Sawtooth) Coriander (Eryngium foetidum). It's also called Thai Coriander, or Pointed Cilantro, Cilentro, Culantro, Thorny Coriander, Ngo Gai, Mexican Coriander, Phak Chee Farang, Daunketumbar Jawa, Chinese Coriander, and Long Leafed Coriander. The smell and taste is very similar to regular coriander. Apparently sawtooth coriander leaves have good potential for drying as it does retain flavour whereas the annual coriander does not keep its...

Without fail every time I wear a sari and tilak...

    As I explained in Part One, a number of edible plants are doing very well in my midwinter patio garden. This perennial herb is Sheep Sorrel (Rumex acetosella). It can be eaten raw or cooked. I throw the leaves in dals and salads. It has a pleasantly sour flavour. It has distinctive arrow-shaped leaves that make it easy to identify. If planted in the garden, it will run riot, so I keep mine in pots. Sheep sorrell is very deep-rooted and I cut the long-stalked leaves as needed. The leaves...

    My favourite garden resident at the moment is Tat soi (sometimes written as tatsoi). It is unmistakeable as it grows - little bouquets of lush, dark green, spoon-shaped leaves. The leaves are firm yet soft, with a mildly-sharp, slightly spicy flavour. Tat soi is a well-loved Asian green that goes by many names including flat cabbage, rosette bok choy, and spoon cabbage. It's a member of the brassica family which includes broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collards, and kale. I bought a decent...
