Re the foraged recipes in Feast (24 July), does buying from Ocado count as foraging? If it doesn’t supply young nettle leaves and dandelion flowers, these recipes will be a challenge, as neither are currently available in the wild; May is the time to source them.
• Emma John (The Hundred: not cricket as we know it, but nothing for sceptics to fear, 21 July) was just about right. What I saw had nothing to do with the sport of cricket. It was pure circus: a circus ring, ringmasters and performing animals. Entertainment yes, cricket no. To sell this as cricket almost amounts to fraud.
• Like David Webber (Letters, 21 July), I too have never understood the pejorative use of “woke”. I was taught by my parents, then in school and by work colleagues, to be woke. To me, it means good manners or politeness or, as David writes, decency.
• Re the confusion over names (Letters, 23 July), a colleague with the unusual surname of Mash was trying to dictate a telegram over the phone. The operator seemed insistent that his surname was Nash. Eventually, in exasperation, he explained that it was spelled “with an M – M for mnemonic”.
• I received a letter addressed to Timmy Tree many years ago. The name has stuck with some sarcastic “friends” and to this day continues to be used by them.
