Food: Extract, extract, read all about it

Gardening: Colour fast

Sowing hardy annuals is the simplest and most rewarding kind of gardening, says Sarah Raven. All you need for years of flowers is 15 minutes, some soil, a fork, a rake and seed

Me And My Partner: William Carey and Nigel Legge

William Carey was recruited by Nigel Legge to his sales team 13 years ago. Nine years later, the pair established River and Mercantile Asset Management, specialising in the UK stock market. They now manage pounds 550m on behalf of 7,000 clients

Gardening: Home farm

You don't need a garden the size of a field to grow your own vegetables. Tasty varieties of beans, tomatoes and Swiss chard grow perfectly well in containers, says Sarah Raven

The crime of contagion

It is tempting to apply a policy of coercion for those who won't co-operate with TB treatment

The Agreeable World Of Wallace Arnold: The Tintin affair: how I almost made a gingery legend

OFFHAND, I can think of many a fellow Fleet Street scrivener who has been immortalised twixt the pages of the novel. One need only point to the estimable Bill Deedes, the original not only for the hilarious figure of Boot in Lyn Waugh's Black Mischief but also for the genial and well-connected if essentially uninteresting Postman Pat in the long-running television series of the same name.

Letter: Home grown?

Sir: While at first sight, the prediction that sales of organic food will triple in the next four years is good news (report, 7 November), this increase will come almost entirely from imports of organic produce. Currently, 80 per cent of organic food sold here is imported, with simple items such as carrots and onions coming from far away, even though we are capable of growing these ourselves. It is sometimes hard to convince a consumer that an imported organic cauliflower at twice the price is better than a chemically produced one grown only miles away.

Gardening: Time to put in some patch work

If you want the the lushest greens, act now, and spring should prove plentiful

Football: Edmilson takes some stick over carrot act

CARROTS WERE once reputed to improve a person's ability to see in the dark, but it takes more than sharp eyesight to penetrate the dim depths of the intellect that conjured up the latest in a long line of eccentric, not to say ludicrous, goal celebrations that have begun to illuminate Brazilian club football.

Cabinet seats for old order

RUSSIA WAS heading for a fundamental change in its political landscape last night after the Prime Minister, Viktor Chernomyrdin, confirmed he is considering a coalition government in which the Communist Party - Boris Yeltsin's arch-enemies - could have cabinet seats.

The fruits (and veg) of her labour

Angela Evans spends hours inspecting groceries, not for their nutritional value, but to use them as moulds for her hand-made tiles.

City & Business: Washington exerts a diminishing influence

HER DAD was one of America's best known trade negotiators in the 1960s. She herself worked in the White House in the 1980s. Last week, she was in Tokyo talking to key figures about Japan's economy. Yet none of this could save Philippa Malmgren, chief currency strategist at Bankers Trust Alex Brown in London, from the moment financial market forecasters suffer in their worst nightmares.

Carrots and the schtick

A new orchestral tribute to Bugs Bunny has amused and impressed the man who brought the rascally rabbit to the silver screen.

G8 Summit: Sticks and carrots for the bad boys of Asia

THE world's major powers last night sought to contain separate theatres of turmoil in South Asia, trying to brake the nuclear arms race on the Indian sub-continent and pleading for dialogue and reform to avert the worst in riot-torn Indonesia.
