Listening to In Our Time (Solon the Lawgiver): http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m001k7wb
Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss Solon, who was elected archon or chief magistrate of Athens in 594 BC: some see him as the father of Athenian democracy. In the first years of the 6th century BC, the city state of Athens was in crisis. The lower orders of society were ravaged by debt, to the point where some were being forced into slavery. An oppressive law code mandated the death penalty for everything from murder to petty theft. There was a real danger that the city could fall into either tyranny or civil war. Solon instituted a programme of reforms that transformed Athens’ political and legal systems, its society and economy, so that later generations referred to him as Solon the Lawgiver.

This autumn is getting off to a strange start, as here in the Mojave High Desert there are carpets of little yellow wildflowers thanks to the hurricane, old Hurricane Hilary which soaked us all pretty good a month ago. Never seen so many weeds in late September. Happy Equinox from Desert Oracle Radio, celebrating 200 episodes with tonight’s show.

“This year, I thought I’d see if they will grow more productively in a container if sown close together, and then ‘thinned’ (the small ones picked out) as they grow. The first few pickings looked and tasted a bit like chives. We added these to salads and they were delicious. Then came small, tender spring onions, and finally a steady supply of full sized spring onions.”
