One of my greatest pleasures since the advent of the Internet is listening to radio from all over the world. One of my very favorites is Gardener's Question Time on BBC 4.
Today's programme began with an introduction from Lincolnshire which included an improbable anecdote about Margaret Thatcher and vegetables.
It seems Mrs. Thatcher took her entire cabinet out to dinner. When they were all seated around the table the waiter began to take the order.
"I'll have the steak," Thatcher said.
"And what about the vegetables?" the waiter asked.
Thatcher said, "oh, they'll have the steak too."
If you're a gardener, or simply enjoy congenial conversation, have a listen.
