Jonny Sweet: Let's All Just Have Some Fun, Pleasance Courtyard

Sporting a bow tie and a broad grin, Jonny Sweet, genius of socially awkward comedy and winner of last year's Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, has found another poor unfortunate to bring to life. Imagine a Hugh Grant type with "street Tourette's" ("let's do this shit!") and you'll have some idea of the persona he's created.

Minor British Institutions: Lundy Island

It may surprise you to learn that an Islamic flag once flew over this tiny fragment of the British Isles. Lundy Island's compactness has made it an attractive target for all sorts over the centuries, and 300 years ago it was Barbary pirates who seized possession of this 445 hectare eddy in the Bristol Channel.

36 on the Quay, 47 South Street, Emsworth, Hampshire

There is a charming photograph of 36 on the Quay when it was the Anchor Inn a century ago. It shows a thick-set ruffian with the moustache of a villain in a Chaplin movie. Hands tucked into his waistband, legs apart, he's looking at the camera as though accusing it of spilling his pint. Around him are half a dozen cronies, glaring at the intruding lens. They wouldn't have made the Anchor feel a very welcome place to pop into for a refreshing sherbet.

Book Of A Lifetime: Nineteen Eighty-Four, By George Orwell

Growing up in Sixties suburban London was rather like lying in tepid bathwater for several years. Into this sleepy complacency fell Nineteen Eighty-Four, a book that entrapped me for life. I was on the cusp of adolescence, reading voraciously, gradually testing the limits of my smug world, and bought it in the Popular Book Centre Greenwich, a seedy secondhand shop with a nice line in top-shelf smut. As we were still 15 years away from the novel's date, I naively assumed it would provide futuristic rocket adventures.

Brian Viner: We have now been in the country for as long as we ever lived in the city

This summer it will be eight years since we moved to Docklow, north Herefordshire, from Crouch End, north London. This will be a significant anniversary for us because we lived in Crouch End for eight years, so come July we will be Herefordians as much as we ever were Crouch Enders. Yet the strange thing is that even now, so rooted in this beautiful county that our 11-year-old has no memories of living anywhere else, indeed almost literally rooted in that saplings we planted when we arrived are now strong adolescent trees, we still sometimes get asked whether we miss London and will ever go back? Nobody thought to ask us, after eight years in Crouch End, whether we felt as though we belonged.

You don't need a garden or an allotment to grow your own veg - just get potting

Is it possible to grow food if you don't have a proper veg garden? Yes, of course it is and for many people this will not only be the best, but the sole option. You could even argue that there are advantages to this approach. Rather than being daunted as a new gardener on a new allotment, facing a large piece of ground which is daring you to be its master, you can inch your way into the growing calendar, adding more items to the grow-your-own list as space and time allow.

Cabbages for kings: Mark Hix turns over a brand new leaf

Cabbage gets overlooked a bit at the best of times. I know that we have a reputation for being a nation of meat and two vegetables, but the cabbage family deserves much more prominence on restaurant menus apart from just being boiled and served with a Sunday roast. We grow many varieties of cabbage in the UK, from white cabbage to glossy dark green Italian cavolo nero.
