Broad beans make a salad. Last year the black aphids killed them off. This year I’m fighting back with hosepipe.

There is not too much left in the veg garden, apart from the last of the runner beans, courgettes, and tomatoes, but from lawn and borders, there are still quite a few leaves to make a salad.
Some greens still going.
- Sorrel – a big leafed kind of herb. I thought I pulled it up last year, but it regrew in August, to my surprise. A neighbour gave it. I was pleased it grew back.
- Dandelion leaves
- Spinach – a few slug holes
- Lettuce – only one or two plants left, but get a few leaves
- Flowers of Borage
- Swiss Chard
Every year, I follow the Sri Chinmoy 3100 Mile Self-Transcendence Race from a distance. This year seemed a particularly good edition. I know Nirbhasa (who finished in 2nd place) and so you can relate to the runners even more.
This year the race also received excellent coverage on the BBC. A foreign friend said – look how spiritual Britain is to have an article like that on its main national newsite.
That made me laugh because when you look at the political situation of Britain, spiritual development isn’t the first thing that springs to mind!
Anyway, I wrote a short article here at 3100 Mile Race 2019
