My earliest food memory... It goes back to Devon, where we used to go during the holidays, and mum making plum ice-cream and brown-bread ice-cream. We also used to scramble around the rocks and pick mussels and boil them up in the evening. As a child, my mum [the cookery writer Josceline Dimbleby] didn't teach me how to cook – she would always shoo us out of the kitchen because she was trying to write detailed notes – but she really taught me how to eat, which is much more important.

With exactly 500 days to go from tomorrow before the curtain goes up on the London Olympics, a new event has been added to the programme: the tug of war.

Nick Rose can remember little of his 5,000m run at Madison Square Garden on 12 February, 1982 - other than his British indoor record performance at the annual Millrose Games in New York City being regarded back home as “not much of a deal.” It will be different if Mo Farah manages to beat the clock, and Rose’s time of 13min 21.27sec, in the Aviva Grand Prix at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham this afternoon – especially now that Britain’s male athlete of the year has announced his intention to move to the north-west American city known as “Little Beirut,” and to switch coaches to the man who finished two places and four seconds behind the Bristolian Rose in that near-forgotten 5,000m race at ‘The Garden.’

Gardens are an enduring motif in artwork, usually as a picturesque setting for a picnic scene, tea on the lawn or a child picking flowers. But for the Impressionists in Paris in the 19th Century, a movement which coincided with an explosion in enthusiasm for domestic horticulture, gardens became a subject in their own right and not simply a convenient backdrop.
